Power Potential

The intensifying focus on sustainable and low-carbon initiatives in the UK has resulted in a rise in battery energy storage solutions, which is set to continue as these initiatives are expanded in pursuit of the government’s environmental policy objectives. This is highlighted as market analysts predict that more than 9,000MWh of battery energy storage in the UK could be deployed between now and 2022 as the sector experiences unprecedented growth (1).

Energy-intensive industries, such as the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector, will benefit from the ability to optimise energy use, reduce consumption during peak times, and participate in demand response services, in addition to benefitting from full uninterruptible power supply (UPS) capabilities.

Researchers found that in just 12 months the number of new battery storage projects in the UK had risen by more than 240%, with installations likely to continue rising by around 200% annually. This is driven by national initiatives to phase out coal, along with falling technology costs and an increase in wind and solar capacity for co-location with batteries. Such increases could see the UK become a global market leader in the battery energy storage market, with international organisations eager to tap into the UK’s knowledge, expertise, and specialisation in the technology once they see the energy resilience and cost savings that companies achieve.
