So, could this be a forerunner to the next diversified GSF investment being in Japan? I have asked the CEO the question.

I strongly believe the name of the game here is buildout and increase trading income as BESS becomes a more competitive and saturated market.

Eager to see the results in a fortnight.🤞🏻🤞27995;

A negative would be the focus, but equally, they will want their main fund, to perform well, they can take further risk elsewhere. I look forward to fully covered dividend, a healthy return and growing nav. In theory
Well it does provide some crumb of comfort and a degree of confidence that the fund managers are not a complete bunch of charlatans.

LONDON, Dec. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Gore Street Capital and ITOCHU Corporation have been selected by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) to launch Japan's first fund dedicated to grid-scale energy storage systems.

The two firms have been jointly selected as the managers of TMG's energy creation and energy storage promotion fund following a competitive process held in April 2023. The pair will launch a joint venture to manage the public-private partnership fund, to which TMG will contribute ¥2bn (£10.6m) in funds by the end of fiscal year 2023. Additional funding will be raised from the private sector, including from ITOCHU.

The fund will be targeted at projects in the Kanto region of Japan. TMG intends for the energy storage assets to support its efforts to expand renewable electricity usage to 50% by 2030. ITOCHU is already developing several grid storage battery projects in Japan, with a cumulative total of more than 100 MWh of assets under development.

Alex O'Cinneide, CEO of Gore Street Capital, said: "We are proud to have been selected as the joint manager of Japan's ;first dedicated energy storage fund in partnership with ITOCHU. 

"Gore Street Capital was one of the first to act in Great Britain's energy storage market back in 2016 and, in its capacity as investment manager of the internationally diversified Gore Street Energy Storage Fund (LSE: GSF), has a proven track record of acquiring and managing a large portfolio of energy storage assets across multiple OECD jurisdictions.

"We have developed a specialist platform offering the full range of technical expertise needed to successfully monetise energy storage assets throughout their lifetime, from acquisition and construction, asset management and commercialisation all the way through to decommissioning and recycling.

"We look forward to bringing this experience to Japan, alongside our partners at ITOCHU, to deploy the energy storage capacity needed to accelerate the country's clean energy transition to a low-carbon and sustainable future."

The new fund will aim to establish a new green financing model for investments in Japan's ;nascent utility-scale energy storage sector. GSC and ITOCHU will jointly manage the investment and technical decisions taken by the fund, creating the foundations for the country's future deployment of grid-level energy storage assets.

Several revenue streams are already in place nationally to support new energy storage, including access to Japan Electric Power Exchange (JEPX) – one of the most mature wholesale energy markets in the Asia–Pacific region – and grid balancing services.

New ancillary services are expected to launch in 2024 alongside a low-carbon capacity market allowing battery energy storage of three hours to participate in auctions scheduled for 2023 and 2024 and secure subsidies over a 20-year period.

Suminori Arima, chief investment officer at Gore Street Capital, said: "We are highly experienced in entering new markets as a first mover to help establish energy storage as crucial technology of the energy transition. The market conditions in Japan are poised to offer significant opportunities for those willing to take them.

"Through this collaboration with ITOCHU, we are excited to build on our experience and help shape the future of the Japanese energy storage sector."

Possibly worth reading this RNS from 12th October again?
Useful graph of BESS pricing and all UK installed capacity at: Modo has just got some VC funding.
Been skimming through the UK Battery Strategy doc.

Looks like it's probably worth a more careful look;

"Both The Faraday Institution and BloombergNEF models use National Grid: Future Energy Scenarios250 to estimate demand for grid storage. They model demand for energy storage under different scenarios of the whole energy system to 2050, including falling short of Net Zero commitments and reaching net zero by 2050 in three different ways, to reflect the inherent uncertainty in these estimates. They estimate that BESS could provide 10-20GW of capacity to the UK grid by 2030, and 30-35GW by 2050, representing the largest installed capacity compared to other storage technologies. In their models of total demand, The Faraday Institution and BloombergNEF estimate around 5-10GWh demand for grid storage by 2030.
These battery demand models are built on assumptions around EV production, the battery energy storage demand per year, and battery capacity forecasts. Differences in these key assumptions explain some of the variation between different models. Further details are available on The Faraday Institution251 and Bloomberg252 models"

fordtin, thanks for the info.

so re my charging question, the answer seems to be ... "it depends on the battery"...

I guess that's fair enough, but it would be nice if GSF (and/or other BESS companies) provided that sort of info on their website, or presentations.

llef - had another look and this popped up straight away

"What is the Battery C‐Rate?

A battery’s C rating is the rate at which a battery can be fully charged or discharged. For example, charging at a C-rate of 1C means that the battery is charged from 0 - 100% or discharged from 100 - 0% in one hour.

A C-rate higher than 1C means a faster charge or discharge, for example, a 2C rate is twice as fast (30 minutes to full charge or discharge). Likewise, a lower C-rate means a slower charge or discharge, as an example, a C-rate of 0.25 would mean a 4-hour charge or discharge."

I haven't had time to read this yet, just parking the link here so I know where to find it;

llef - I've tried to find info on that before, but found nothing so far.

The website is still showing Ferrymuir (49.9 MW) Target Energisation - November-end.

Do you think they'll give an update this week, or just leave us to guess?

Quite a change in price since the summer.
wholesale price of UK electricity under £90 per MWH between midnight and 5am, and over
£230 between 4pm and 6pm tomorrow.

Decent turn there for battery storage - does anyone know what is the efficiency of the batteries used for storage, and how long does it take to charge up a 50MW/100MWH installation (ie is it 2 hours, 4 hours etc).


The closure of the NAV to share price gap is welcome, however I foresee income pressures in the other markets too which will only intensify as more storage comes on-line. It will be interesting to see if the divi cover is over 1.0.

So the challenge is growth of producing assets to mitigate this pressure (and of course we know grid connection is not under GSFs control).

As long as the NAV stays above £1.14 the dividend will be 8p this year so the NAV value is a significant focus for me too.

Seminal year for GSF methinks!🤞🏻🤞 7995;

Presently being promoted by National Grid FYI:

If the results are good and push it well into the 90's then I'll trim a bit, but still seems good to fair value at this level
alan pt
Indeed nor did the price of renewables in the UK earlier in the year, where you were being paid to power up the batteries, a bit like that time a few years back when oil went negative, UK prices have picked up and will again as the weather turns colder, so better for sector, but what I like here is the revenue mix both geographically and via trading
Quite a large amount of shares were sold for whatever reason. That did not help the price waterloo01
Worth buying for income alone. The dividends look safe and set to increase over time plus you have the prospect of capital growth with the discount to NAV closing as interest rates fall next year. Still a strong buy.
lord gnome
Maybe but there doesn't seem to be reason it dropped in the 1st place, so hoping no pull back. At 85p it's still delivering 8.8% divi at 27.95% discount to NAV
Based on the best realistic purchase price on 31st October this is up 40% in less than a month

And yet I am HODLing. Well not holding indefinitely but with the discount to NAV still at 27% why would I sell? Especially since it seems the buys are coming in as if someone knows something.

Results are on the 14th December so that's a while away yet.

My gut says stay in, my head fears a significant pullback.

Has anyone got daily visibility on battery storage prices in Texas?
What a difference a day makes. Yesterday inflation was down and after good US news and everything looking rosy for a change. Today the wheels have fallen off practically all my carts. Talk about one step forward two steps back.
