A global BESS pipeline
Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) are a core component of the future energy grid, and an essential enabler of the shift to renewable energy technologies.
At Pacific Green we are rapidly building a global pipeline of utility-scale BESS sites, with a multi gigawatt hour (GWh) portfolio across Europe and Australia.
We take these projects throughout the asset lifecycle, from origination and development to long-term asset management.

Global presence /
Global portfolio, global relationships
Pacific Green has a global reach with a number of international offices, and we partner with world-leading battery technology producers.
Our presence in Shanghai, where we have over 30 engineers and 15 years of renewable energy and storage experience, gives us a deep understanding of what it takes to form long-term partnerships in China.
Rather than sourcing ‘off the shelf’ solutions, we work in partnership with our manufacturers to develop technologies that meet our specific needs. This hands-on partnership approach ensures timely delivery of project-critical equipment, even when global supply chains are stretched.

“Pacific Green has a global reach with international offices and we partner with world-leading battery technology producers. We can execute projects at scale and at speed, allowing investors to rapidly tap into the lucrative returns that can be gained from large-scale battery energy parks around the world.”
Investing in a battery storage energy park
There are a growing number of energy infrastructure opportunities in the UK as the country sets a course for net zero emissions. The example here is the case of two projects totalling 350MW / 475MWh being built by Pacific Green at the site of an old power station - Richborough Energy Park in Kent.
Richborough (99.8MW) is the first phase on this site. The phase 2 development, namely Sheaf, is already underway and comprises a further 250MW/375MWh on adjacent land. It is expected to be operational in early 2025.
When finished, these projects will total 475MWh and will form the largest battery energy storage installation in the UK.
