The Renewables Infrastructure Group Limited

"TRIG" or "the Company", a London-listed investment company advised by InfraRed Capital Partners ("InfraRed") as Investment Manager and Renewable Energy Systems ("RES") as Operations Manager

Battery storage investment

The Company has exchanged contracts to acquire the right to develop three battery storage sites in the North of England. Two of the projects, which when built will total c.165MW with a two-hour duration, are scheduled for grid connection and commencement of operations in 2024 and 2025. The third site, which has a capacity for c.85MW also with a two-hour duration, will be built later in line with its grid connection date, which is in 2029, although it may be possible to bring this date forward.

This is a key milestone for the Company and builds on the strategy laid out at the Capital Markets Seminar held in April 2022 to complement the renewable generation assets in the portfolio with flexible capacity. Utility scale batteries such as these provide grid supporting services and trade in the wholesale power market, with both activities helping to stabilise the electricity system.

Flexible capacity projects diversify TRIG's portfolio as their revenues are expected to have a low correlation to the absolute level of wholesale power prices received by renewables generators. In order to provide greater revenue optionality, the battery storage is being configured as a two-hour energy storage system, which is at the longer end of most existing installations. This configuration expands the project revenue stack by extending the trading options available in the wholesale market, which is deeper than the ancillary services market.

The sites, which have been developed by and acquired from Aura Power Developments Limited, each have land rights, planning permission and grid connection agreements secured. RES is being contracted to progress the development of the projects through the procuring of equipment and construction. The Managers (InfraRed and RES) are mindful of the sustainability considerations in relation to battery storage equipment, particularly in relation to the supply-chain, which will be reflected in the procurement framework. Both Managers have significant experience in the flexible capacity market extending back over a decade.

Once the first two projects are built (expected in 2025) the investment will represent approximately 4% of the portfolio, by value.

Richard Crawford, of InfraRed Capital Partners, said:

"Greater deployment of flexible capacity and renewable generation are crucial components in addressing energy security, decarbonisation and energy affordability. For TRIG, the addition of battery storage into an already diversified generation portfolio further reduces revenue variability, and draws on the deep expertise of InfraRed and RES of investing in and delivering development-stage projects."
