Tupa Energy develops utility-scale projects, through site identification, feasibility, grid connection to detailed planning consent. We aim to facilitate the delivery of an additional 1GW of battery storage within the next 3 years.
Batteries are critical for enabling renewables to be deployed throughout the UK. Wind and solar power are intermittent and need to be supported with energy storage. Batteries balance the electricity network by storing excess power on windy and sunny days and exporting when there are shortfalls.
Battery storage will be fundamental in assisting the UK's transition to electric vehicles by distributing the supply and demand of electricity more efficiently.
Tupa Energy is developing utility-scale solar, which will sit alongside its battery solution or be standalone projects.
Solar capacity will need to double from around 14GW today, to 28GW by 2050 to accommodate the increase in demand from electric vehicles and the reduction in generation from fossil fuels.
Tupa Energy is developing rapid charging sites, which will act like traditional service stations. These charging locations will be able to add up to 300 miles range in a 10-minute charge. This will help reduce carbon emissions and eliminate range anxiety.
The demand for electric vehicles (EV) is increasing year on year, as is the requirement for chargers. It is predicted that the UK will need to invest £100bn by 2030 in charging infrastructure in order to hit its target of 20 – 30m electric vehicles by 2040.
