We have recently published a consultation document which outlines the need for electricity storage in the UK and how it can form a valuable part of our national electrical infrastructure. From these we have drawn a number of key actions that will work to enhance the introduction of electricity storage into our networks.
- More volatile imbalance charges
- Improved contract terms for ancillary services and energy markets
- Ensure Feed-In-Tariffs and Renewable Obligation Certificates can only be received if complementary electricity storage has also been built
- Introduce a mandated requirement for network companies to install storage
Our intention is to select one, or a number of these, that could be given to the Government and regulatory agencies.
Any feedback or discussion about these proposals will be welcomed!
