Storelectric’s Teesside project

Storelectric launched a presence in Teesside to assist industry’s transition towards net zero.

Why Teesside?

Storelectric launched a presence in Teesside and has opened an office based in the Wilton Centre, to assist industry’s transition towards net zero. With a rich history of innovation and industrial expertise, alongside the natural landscape, Teesside is an ideal location for Storelectric.

Teesside boasts the UK’s largest process cluster and is playing a pivotal role in the global energy transition. Our proximity to key industry players within the Wilton Centre, a science park in the North East of England, creates unparalleled opportunities for collaboration and knowledge exchange.

We are committed to driving collective success and accelerating Teesside’s transition towards decarbonisation for the benefit of future generations.

Our Teesside Project

Storelectric’s Teesside project stands as a beacon for innovation and sustainability. Harnessing existing geological storage sites with Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) technology. This initiative is paving the way for decarbonisation across industry.

Honouring Teesside’s legacy of innovation and building on its proud history as a pioneer in hydrogen storage since the 1970s, the project is reimagining commercial energy storage to accelerate the transition to a net zero future.

With a vision firmly rooted in collaboration and progress, the project is bridging the gap between suppliers and users, driving towards a reliable and commercially viable supply of clean energy. This project represents more than just repurposing infrastructure; it symbolises a commitment to a greener, more sustainable future.

What is Net Zero Teesside?

Teesside is located in the North East of England and is home to one of the UK’s largest process clusters. Net Zero Teesside is a collection of industrial, power and hydrogen businesses which aim to aim to decarbonize their operations through the deployment of carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS).

Teesside’s industrial cluster and neighbouring offshore CO2 storage sites make it an ideal location for carbon capture utilisation and storage projects, Net Zero Teesside, that are now being developed by local industry and partners.

Net Zero Teesside aims to deliver the UK’s first zero-carbon industrial cluster by 2030, to find out more information about the Net Zero Teesside agenda here.
