This session will cover the different types of storage available on the market, how they work and what they cost. It will also look at some examples of storage in practice and how the technology is likely to develop in the future.


Members only Meeting

Date: 4th March 2015
Location: Portland House, Bressenden Place, SW1E 5BH
Members have been sent an email with a link to register for this event. 

Grid code compliance for Renewable Generation and the opportunities for electricity storage.

The third electricity package of the EU will introduce 10 new codes which control the operation of the electricity systems across the EU. Some of these will have significant changes on the operation of the network.  This seminar, with inputs from our members who are actively preparing for the introduction of these new codes, will consider the impact of grid code compliance for renewable generation and the opportunities and issues for electricity storage.
