Battery energy storage systems (BESS) are the key to unlocking the full potential of intermittent renewable energy; the more renewable energy that is connected, the more important the ability to manage its intermittent nature becomes. Harmony have 42MW/84MWh BESS operating in the UK, with a future 326MW/652MWh in build.
Harmony Energy is currently developing large solar PV farms, using our project expertise to support landowners throughout the development process.
In the UK Harmony is developing 200MWs of standalone solar projects and 500MWs of solar projects co-located with its battery projects
Solar PV is a proven, cost-effective technology and many countries around the world are turning to it to help meet their energy needs.
