About the Storage Challenge

Harwell Science and Innovation Campus has over 80 potential sites for storage solutions - ranging from small industrial units to large research institutes with MW continuous energy requirements.

Harwell is looking to build its ability to support the energy transition and the challenges of reducing its carbon footprint using different types of energy storage solutions.

Here some examples of buildings in the Harwell site that require medium scale to large energy storage solutions:
