In site terms, it is often not just about unlocking the renewable potential. Once a decision on energy storage has been reached, a key part of the attraction is the value plus different solutions can offer. These can be a variety of reasons, such as ancillary services, ESG credentials, safety concerns, or the social aspects energy storage can provide.
