Modo Selects - Battery energy storage and wind generation with Bridgit Hartland-Johnson

Wind has supplied half of the generation mix in Great Britain in 2023 so far! With wind power contributing more than ever before to our energy system, what challenges surround the buildout and optimisation of our ever-growing offshore wind fleet?

In this episode we revisit one of our favourite conversation between Ørsted’s Bridgit Hartland-Johnson joins Quentin to discuss:

  • What goes into building an offshore wind farm.
  • How CfDs (contracts for difference) work.
  • Why we need more battery energy storage to support our growing wind fleet, and the prospects for wind and BESS co-location.
  • What the business models for wind and energy storage look like.
  • And, of course, where Ørsted fits into all of this.
