The Pillswood battery energy storage system (BESS), developed by Harmony Energy Limited and owned by Harmony Energy Income Trust (HEIT), has won the “Grid-scale Standalone Energy Storage Project of the Year” award at the Energy Storage Awards.

The award recognises a standalone energy storage system project of over 1MW/1MWh, which stands out in a sea of high-quality projects across Europe. HEIT’s winning entry nominated the Pillswood project in Hull, which is one of the largest BESS in Europe by MWh at 196 MWh (98 MW).

Norman Crighton, Chairman of HEIT, commented:

“We are delighted to receive the Grid-scale Standalone Energy Storage Project of the Year Award at this year’s Energy Storage Awards for our Pillswood project. Since its successful energisation in November 2022, it has been one of the best performing BESS projects in Great Britain. I would like to take this time to thank all of the HEIT team for continuing to maintain our strong momentum delivering a diversified and scalable portfolio of BESS projects across Great Britain.”

The Energy Storage Awards took place at the Park Plaza London Riverbank on 28 September 2023 and recognised the excellence and hard work in the European industry, identifying the pioneering spirit and dedication to positive change across the globe.

Everyone at HEIT and HEL would like to congratulate all those who participated in the awards.
