Pilsworth 15 MWh Grid Scale Demonstrator Plant

In addition to providing energy storage, the cryogenic energy storage plant converts low-grade waste heat from the GE Jenbacher landfill gas engines to power.

Operation started in April 2018 at Pilsworth Landfill facility in Bury, Greater Manchester. The plant demonstrates how cryogenic energy storage can provide a number of balancing services, including Short Term Operating Reserve (STOR) and supporting the grid during winter peaks.
