Bristol Council greenlights battery storage project at City Hall

Bristol Energy estimates the project’s combined income and savings will be around £33,000 a year

A new battery storage unit is to be installed at City Hall after Bristol City Council cabinet members gave the green light for the project.

Bristol Energy, which powers all of the council’s sites, will install the battery in the basement at City Hall later this year, allowing the council to generate savings by charging it when energy prices are low before discharging when they are at their peak.

The project will also enable the council to reduce its carbon emissions as the grid is often most carbon intensive during peak hours.
