What is Battery Storage and why do we need it?
Our Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) store excess electricity until sold into the National Grid to meet industrial or domestic electricity demands. Our BESS assets help level out expensive peaks and troughs of electricity pricing caused by supply and demand imbalance.
To build a portfolio of commercial Battery Storage assets that contributes to the essential renovation of the UK’s renewable infrastructure and clean energy transition.
Lower 48 BESS is a UK based, new energy player focused on developing Battery Energy Storage Assets (“BESS”).
We have the vision, colleagues with real ambition and financial backing to deliver our mission.
To develop a robust, trusted and integrated international BESS portfolio and grid connections to accelerate the decentralised creation and use of renewable electricity.
Develop and own a portfolio of 250MW of Battery Storage in the UK in the next 2-3 years with a further expansion in the next 5-7 years delivering a Battery Storage capacity of 1GW, in-order to contribute to renewable infrastructure growth, and provide attractive financial returns for our investors.
We participate across the entire value chain, from originating grid connections, financing construction, and then managing the operation of the assets.
In delivering a world class Battery Storage portfolio we will do so using Integrity, Perseverance, Agility and Excellence without compromise, fear or favour.
We care deeply about how we build our company. Every action, every decision, is underpinned and driven by these values. Our approach to values is one built on respect and a shared desire to do 'the right thing'. This approach will pay dividends.
In being true to our values, other complementary values follow, such as freely striving to learn, caring for each other and doing things better. And in doing so, this will be noticed by those around us, our staff, our partners, and our supply chain. It goes without saying we are a Safety First, community orientated business. That way we respect others and in turn they respect us.
