First US plant for UK’s Regenesys

Regenesys, the energy storage technology unit of UK multi-utility Innogy PLC (IOG), has said that construction has begun on its first US plant in Columbus, Mississippi, USA. The Tennessee Valley Authority is building the Regenesys-designed battery power plant – which will store electricity during off-peak periods and retrieve it when the need for power increases – at a cost of around USD 25 million. The plant is expected to begin operation in 2003, the press release said. The Columbus plant is the second of two Regenesys plants under construction. Innogy is also building a plant in Little Barford, Cambridgeshire, UK, which is due to be completed in 2002.
