    As the UK moves towards its goal of being a net zero carbon economy by 2050, the case for durable and efficient energy storage is growing. Not only can energy storage help to top up deficits caused by intermittent solar and wind power, it can also help meet high energy demand during peak times, making the grid smarter and more responsive.

    With 1.1 gigawatts of battery storage capacity operating in the UK and another 15 gigawatts under construction or planned, there is already significant investment in energy storage. Batteries are a crucial part of the solution, but given the scale of the country’s energy decarbonisation targets, all energy storage options need to be considered.

    Join Westminster Insight’s Modernising Energy Storage Digital Workshop where we will be discussing the latest innovations in energy storage, addressing the problems of durability and inefficiency, and considering the best applications for different energy storage options.
