Proactive Investors - Renewable energy group Orsted is to open a new battery storage facility capable of supplying 80,000 homes onshore of the giant Hornsea 3 wind farm.

To be installed at Swardeston, near Norwich, on the same site as the onshore substation for Hornsea 3, the plant will use a Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) battery and have a capacity of 600 Mwh.

Storing weather-dependent green energy for when it is needed most has been a major hurdle to its widespread adoption but the new facility will address that said Orsted.

Duncan Clark, the Danish firm's UK and Ireland chief said in a statement: “The battery will help ensure that renewable energy is used in the best possible way by storing it when demand is lower and then releasing it back into the system when it's really needed."

The system is scheduled to be operational by 2026. No details on the cost of the new facility were released.
