S1722 - Energy storage for power networks

1 day Seminar | Completed
Tuesday 12 March 2013


Power networks provide the backbone for our energy infrastructure. With increasing reliance on electricity to support decarbonisation of the energy sector, the importance of energy storage for power networks continues to increase.

There is now a strong research base in all types of energy storage in the UK, and an increasing number of projects which include energy storage are being developed by network operators,  renewable developers as well as other generators and users of power. This seminar brings together users and developers of energy storage, along with researchers and policy makers in order to share ideas and understand how energy storage can and will be used in the future.

This is the third annual seminar organised and run by the Electricity Storage Network and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. It will address the latest developments in national and European policy towards electricity storage, and provide an update on the current status of energy storage technologies and projects.

Free student places:
The Energy Storage Research Network (ESRN) funded by EPSRC can offer support to enable up to 25 students to attend the event with free registration. Priority will be given to students enrolled at UK universities. Please contact if you wish to apply for ESRN support.  Successful applicants will be notified.
