LONDON RESORT SIGNS RENEWABLES DEAL WITH EDF ENERGY
EDF Energy has agreed to partner with the London Resort to enable it to become one of the most sustainable major theme park destinations in the world. Under a 25 year concession to
be signed on the grant of planning, EDF Energy will build, own and operate the onsite renewable energy generation and storage facilities for the London Resort, and enter into a 25 year renewable
energy agreement to supply all of the park’s energy requirements. This landmark agreement is
believed to be a first for the global tourism industry. The project will be one of the
largest construction projects across Europe. The multi-billion pound investment will see seven million square metres of land transformed into two theme parks and a resort water park.

DOZENS OF OFFSHORE WIND JOBS CREATED
Hello and welcome to the Winter issue of Energy Management. New research by RenewableUK
has shown that the number of applications to build battery storage projects in the UK is continuing to increase rapidly. The Project Intelligence report
shows that the total cumulative capacity of battery storage planning applications has soared from nearly 6,900 megawatts a year ago to over 10,500MW today – enough to fully charge over a million electric vehicles. “The pace of change in the
industry is hugely exciting”, according to RenewableUK’s Barnaby Wharton. This issue’s Renewable
Technology feature comprises articles from Siemens and COPA-DATA UK. Siemens explores the potential of electricity storage to function as a key enabler of flexibility, while COPA-DATA UK explains how energy managers can adopt new technologies to better manage and monitor volatile renewable energy generation sites. Other features included in this
busy issue are: Boilers, Pumps & Valves, Building Management Systems, Combined Heat and Power, HVAC, Lighting & Controls, Efficiency, and Insulation.

A major contract to keep hundreds of Vattenfall’s wind turbines operational and safe has been awarded to east coast offshore wind services provider 3sun Group. Up to 30 new jobs will be created
to service the largest contract in the history of the Great Yarmouth- based business. 3sun Group, which already
employs 200 technicians, will carry out statutory inspections across the Swedish energy group’s 50
onshore and offshore windfarms in five countries - the UK, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden. Danielle Lane, Vattenfall’s UK
country manager, said: “Vattenfall is delighted to sign up 3sun Group. The offshore wind sector deal between industry and government commits to both growing the UK sector work force and exporting the UK’s expertise. We achieve both with this 3sun Group deal.”
CENTRICA AND NCP TO TRIAL EV CHARGE PARK
Energy storage contracts in Q3 2019 saw 23 contracts announced, marking a drop of 34 per cent over the last four- quarter average of 35, according to GlobalData. Comparing contracts activity in energy storage segment in different regions of the globe, North America held the top position with 12 contracts and a share of 52.2 per cent during Q3 2019.
EIT InnoEnergy has issued its first ever global call for start-ups across the entire sustainability value chain. The call is open to start-ups worldwide in areas including but not limited to: renewable energy, energy efficiency, and heat and transport, to solve the decarbonisation challenge.
The Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult has launched a new multi-million pound national Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence to drive forward the development of next generation offshore wind technologies.
Centrica and NCP have reached a collaboration agreement for a new EV ‘charge park’ for professional drivers. The first pilot charge park is
expected in the new year, with the two companies promising to examine how to combine leisure services and technology to make charging less onerous.
Jonathan Scott, CEO at NCP,
said: “Mechanisms such as the congestion charge and ultra low emissions zones are drivers for the adoption of electric fleets. We are investing to grow the number of our sites offering EV charging, but we want to do so in a way that’s fit for purpose for all of our customers.”
Energy Assets has announced a major investment in its apprenticeship programme - and plans for a graduate intake - to help meet its future skills requirements. The metering, energy data and network services company will be doubling the number of apprentices it employs by the end of 2020 and aims to launch a new graduate training scheme in the next 12 months.
