Ferrybridge is a 150MW capacity battery energy storage system (BESS) located near Ferrybridge, West Yorkshire. SSE Renewables took a final investment decision on the project in May 2023, and construction started in August 2023.

The site is located on the grounds of the former SSE-owned Ferrybridge power station, which was decommissioned in 2016. Construction is scheduled to be completed by late 2024.

SSE Renewables will partner with OCU Energy and Sungrow to deliver the Ferrybridge BESS project. Once operational, the site will be capable of powering up to 250,000 homes.*
