Description

Overview

Energy storage continues to be a hot topic in the UK and is increasingly seen as a viable solution that can cater to the flexible needs of end-users, the capacity of our transmission and distribution networks help address fluctuating energy generation. With the range and fast moving nature of technologies entering the marketplace, there is a growing need to ensure that consents that come forward for new projects can accommodate evolving design and will be able to compete in both today’s and tomorrow’s marketplace.

Summer 2017 saw the release of new strategy plans from Ofgem, based on responses to a recent BEIS Call for evidence and from National Grid in the form of a system needs and product strategy consultation. It is apparent that the scale of change taking place in our electricity network is significant, but when it comes to maintaining the momentum of new projects on the ground, how do we continue to plan for the unknown?

The purpose of this collaborative seminar is to provide our industry with an insight to current and likely future markets for energy storage as well as discussing ways to continue de-risking projects through effective design and planning.
