This report provides a detailed review of the operational effectiveness of a valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) which has been installed as part of the NINES Project at Lerwick Power Station (LPS) on a distribution network operated by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) in Shetland. The grid-scale VRLA BESS plays an important role in the time-shifting of conventional generation and renewable energy on the Shetland network.
