Framingham-based energy resiliency company Ameresco and a Chinese energy firm have been awarded a $250-million contract to build a 300-megawatt battery energy storage facility in the United Kingdom.

The project, set to be completed by the end of 2026, will see the two firms work together to construct the facility, which will be connected to the power grid to provide the United Kingdom with additional energy security and reliability. When completed, the facility will be one of the largest of its kind in the country, according to a press release issued by Ameresco on Thursday.

Ameresco is partnering with Envision Energy, a green technology company based in Shanghai, China, to complete the project.

The two firms were chosen by Atlantic Green, a joint venture between Israel-based Nofar Energy and UK-based Interland Group that will operate the facility upon completion. 

"We believe that a continuous development of battery energy storage is a vital step in the UK’s journey to achieving net-zero carbon emissions, and we are excited to team up with Ameresco to bring this vision to life," Nick Bradford, managing director of Atlantic Green, said in the Thursday press release. 

News of this latest contract comes after Ameresco was awarded a $21 million contract to revamp a Nevada city’s streetlights on Monday.
