Flatworth is one of four battery storage assets Habitat Energy is optimising on behalf of Pulse Clean Energy as part of an innovative diesel-to-battery conversion programme designed to accelerate the country’s transition to a net zero energy system.

The sites consist of Briton Ferry and Tir John in South Wales, Willoughby in Warwickshire and Flatworth in the North East of England. 

Collectively the four sites represent more than 100MWh of energy storage that will support renewables deployment across the UK and pave the way to a cleaner energy system. 

Habitat Energy has worked closely with Pulse Clean Energy since it acquired the sites as part of a diesel-to-battery conversion and decarbonisation programme. The diesel sites have been decommissioned and repurposed as grid-scale battery storage and energy optimisation assets, with Habitat Energy advising throughout development and managing asset onboarding. 

Habitat Energy’s expert trading team is optimising each asset according to its specific characteristics and location, drawing on machine learning forecasting and algorithmic dispatch tools to maximise value across wholesale and ancillary service markets.
