The current expansion in deployment of storage has been driven by short-duration needs, whether for frequency response or for short periods of inadequate peak capacity. We are also looking forward to the initiation of the market in network asset deferral. This step change in storage deployment is very welcome and supported by ESN. However, the immediate benefits of short-duration solutions risk overshadowing the need for development of longer-duration storage solutions for future energy balancing, i.e: when total electricity generation exceeds or does not meet demand over a period of a few hours to several days. According to Imperial College, some 30% of our electricity production by 2030 would need to be curtailed without the introduction of flexibility solutions such as demand-side response and storage.
Storage assets are beginning to be installed, and commercial and regulatory frameworks being considered, that are likely to persist into the 2020s. It is therefore important that these be developed with a view to longer-duration service needs. This seminar, with presentations, panel sessions, and active audience discussion, will consider:
- The volumes and timescales over which longer-duration storage may be needed
- Current regulatory and market arrangements for deployment of longer-duration storage and barriers to this
- Propects for the future regulatory and market landscape
- Highview Power
- National Grid
- Quarry Battery
