Our History

The founders of Zenobe Energy (previously known as Battery Energy Storage Solutions Limited) have been involved with battery storage for a number of years, having been among the first to adopt the technology in the UK on their own solar sites. This experience enabled them to understand in detail how to use the technology, operate and maintain the batteries and establish the appropriate commercial contracts.


The company launched in 2017 and today owns and operates a portfolio of 63MW of batteries across eight sites, ranging from small 250kw units to 29MW sites which provide a range of services from frequency balancing to reserve power. Since then the company has also raised over £80 million to invest in battery storage projects and assembled a team with a wealth of power technology, finance and strategy skills.
