The benefits of electrical energy storage (EES) are widely acknowledged: many energy industry experts and the likes of former Climate Change Minister Greg Barker consider the technology to be a potential “silver-bullet”.

As the UK moves towards a low-carbon future – adopting more renewable energy sources and increasing the electrification of heating and transport to meet UK government carbon reduction targets, EES could help maximise electricity networks’ capacity, decrease carbon emissions and reduce energy bills.
