Pulse Clean Energy completes acquisition of 72MW of BESS projects

Pulse Clean Energy has completed the acquisition of 72MW of battery assets in Manchester, UK which will come online in 2024. The transaction represents the next step in establishing Pulse’s European, utility-scale storage and stability platform to support the transition to a zero-carbon energy system.

Pulse has already invested in nine diesel generation sites, which are being decommissioned and repurposed as battery storage assets. Its first four sites are due to come online during Q1 2023, with more set to be converted throughout 2023. Pulse has an ambition to build a pipeline of 1GW+ of energy storage assets across multiple markets.

The acquisition follows a number of key appointments for the company, with extensive expertise in development, construction, and operations of flexible generation assets.

Pauline Barker, Investment Director at Pulse Clean Energy Commented: “We are pleased to have completed another successful transaction on our UK BESS pipeline. The sale of the 72MW of battery assets builds on our successful acquisition and conversion of the nine diesel generation sites. We are continuing to expand our development pipeline in order to create a market leading portfolio of battery storage and stability projects both in the UK and internationally.”

Pulse Clean Energy is an investor, developer and holder of flexibility assets backed by IMCO, a Canadian pension fund with over $79 billion under management.
