This conference will discuss the key policy priorities for developing and increasing energy storage capacity in the UK energy network.
In the context of the joint BEIS and Ofgem Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan for developing a new energy system, as well as the Government announcement of the 4-year £246 million Faraday Challenge investment round in battery technology, discussion will focus on current and future levels of investment in the storage market. Sessions will also examine the ways for improving commercial viability and barriers to market, as well as opportunities for new and alternative technology options.
Further sessions will focus on leading storage technologies for domestic and grid-scale use, the key priorities for DNOs in reinforcing local grids and the growing role of EV battery ownership and the potential for vehicle to grid solutions for managing energy demand.
