Deployment of battery storage could add as much as 9GWh to the UK's grid system over the next five years

Energy storage allows for flexibility in the timing of when energy is supplied and when it is used. Storage of solid, liquid and gaseous fuels has been commonplace for centuries, and with the increasing use of electricity from variable renewable sources, electricity storage is becoming an integral element in achieving a smart, flexible, resilient energy network. Strategic placement of storage also gives the potential to avoid otherwise necessary network upgrades.

Join us for a one-day conference on energy storage at the International Festival of Business in Liverpool in June 2018 and learn about the recent technologies in this area.
Read our Energy World articles on how energy storage fits into strategies for carbon reduction
Learn about recent public funding for research and development of energy storage on our policy milestone website.
