How long will it take to complete ESO?

20 January 2020

ESO is a four-year project which began in April 2019. It includes the installation of a world-first hybrid battery energy storage project, 8km of cabling, and a smart network of EV chargepoints and ground source heat pumps. The project has been slightly delayed by Covid, and will be fully installed and live from the end of 2021. The original end date for the project was June 2022 but this is being extended to reflect the delays caused by Covid. The infrastructure will continue to deliver lasting long-term benefits to Oxford and its citizens supporting the city’s journey to net zero and cutting air pollution and carbon emissions.
