Renewables have positioned themselves as the future primary energy source worldwide; for that reason, energy storage is a crucial sector of investment. Energy storage is a working solution to fill the gaps caused by the intermittency issues of renewable energy by stabilising fluctuations in energy demand and supply. This contributes to the security of the electricity supply across the UK and Europe.
One of the biggest hurdles for energy storage solutions is large scale implementation. While many projects exist on a smaller scale, the crucial factor lies in investment and commercialisation.
This event aims to engage with engineers that are delivering the projects in response to the government's plans. Additionally, the event will emphasise the immense potential that energy storage can provide for the UK and Europe. The seminar will highlight updates on regulations and standards from the UK and international sources that currently shape the energy storage landscape.
The aim is to emphasise the critical challenges around scale-grid storage, such as interconnection solutions and fault detection. These insights will help engineers and stakeholders understand current limitations and where investment and research should be directed to overcome the barriers to delivering large-scale storage projects to support flexibility in the grid.
The event will showcase inspiring case studies from various innovative energy solutions including batteries, thermal storage, pumped hydro, and green hydrogen technologies. The goal is to offer engineers a tangible glimpse of how these advancements' compare to each other and the possibilities for the future.
Join this event to:
- Learn about the latest projects and investments from the UK government ensuring energy storage viability
- Discuss the different types of energy storage solutions that are currently available
- Understand how to apply suitability and accessibility into battery storage design
- Opportunity to discuss future innovation in technologies such as flywheel and their potential
- Investigate what the latest technologies are and if they could collaborate with any start-ups
- Gain insights on the latest government plans and regulation updates
- Visualise market evolution and identify the gaps to be filled
- Network with other companies who can offer guidance and future collaboration
