The Battery Storage Revolution
Theatre : Renewables, Supply and Storage
This session will help you understand the direction the market is taking and how you should plan your future battery policy.
Batteries are the hot topic of the moment, but so far few are being installed and commissioned at scale across the sector. This is not only a technology issue, but a finance problem as at present it is often difficult to make the financial case. This session will not only focus on how battery technology is developing but also on how changes in the electricity codes could increase the income generated by batteries.
Batteries installed in medium to large sites across the country could be used to balance the local and national grid. The use of batteries to reduce demand at peak has a value that through the balancing mechanism unit (BMU) can be paid to those operating batteries. This new income stream will change the way you use, own and contract batteries.
