Britain's National Grid Using Six Massive Tesla Batteries To Balance Supply And Demand Of Electricity

Britain used 6 giant batteries manufactured by Tesla to "help balance supply and demand" in the electricity market for the first time this week, according to Bloomberg.

The 6 batteries comprise a plant that can store energy from renewable sources that can then be tapped at times of peak consumption. The National Grid Electricity System Operator uses the backups to balance supply and demand.

Costs of balancing the market have risen over the summer due to the pandemic reducing supply and increasing volatility in usage. National Grid spent almost $1 billion simply balancing the network from March to July - marking an increase of 39% year over year.
