Ørsted and Eversource Energy have submitted a combined proposal to build the Revolution Wind II offshore wind farm in Rhode Island, US. The proposal for the 884 MW wind project was filed in response to the state’s offshore wind solicitation. If permitted, the Revolution Wind II wind farm will provide enough sustainable energy to power over 500,000 Rhode Island homes. Along with investments in port improvements and shipbuilding, the project is anticipated to generate hundreds of local jobs. Also, it will assist the state’s objective of obtaining 100 per cent clean energy by 2033.
In December 2021, Sembcorp Energy UK unveiled plans to develop a 360 MW battery energy storage system at the Wilton International industrial site in Teesside. The battery project is claimed to be Europe’s largest and will help the UK meet its net-zero goals. It will be built in tranches on land already owned by Sembcorp with established connectivity, allowing batteries to be installed quickly.
