Energy Storage

Battery storage is crucial to unleashing the full potential of renewable energy

Battery storage has a growing role in creating a future-fit power infrastructure and energy security across the globe. Every day, electricity grids must balance the supply with demand. The UK has collectively one of the largest installed capacity of offshore wind in the world, and the ability to capture this energy and use it increases the value of this clean energy. Battery storage enables renewable technology as part of the UK’s energy mix. The ability to store excess energy and release it when required, thus balancing the grid, is key to energy independence and is intrinsic to enabling energy security. The energy landscape is constantly evolving, with recent advances in technology meaning the duration that the technology can discharge before requiring recharge is increasing. The combination of renewable energy sources and battery storage is helping the world move from fossil fuels towards a clean energy future.
