BESS

ScottishPower Renewables aims to install 1.5 gigawatts (GW) of energy storage technology by 2030 to keep the electricity grid secure and stable as we move to Net Zero.

Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) allow excess generation to be stored when demand is low and used later, rather than that electricity being wasted. Batteries are green technology and produce no emissions or pollution during normal operation.
