We’ve mapped the UK’s energy storage landscape – are you included?

As part of our Energy Landscapes series, we’ve worked with the Department for International Trade (DIT) and the Energy Industries Council (EIC) to identify over 60 innovative companies operating in the storage sector.

Electricity storage technologies are deploying at different scales, from domestic batteries to larger grid-connected facilities, and are providing a wide range of benefits to the system.

The need for electricity storage will rise as we increase the volume of variable, non-dispatchable renewables on the system, and increase peak demand through the electrification of heat and transport. There are a range of technologies that can provide electricity storage, each with characteristics that may be needed by a net zero system. Around 30GW of total low carbon flexible capacity in 2030, and 60GW in 2050, may be needed to maintain energy security and cost-effectively integrate high levels of renewable generation.

Produced collaboratively with DIT and EIC, our latest landscape maps companies operating in five areas of the storage sector:

  • Grid-scale
  • Industrial & Commercial
  • Residential
  • Engineering
  • EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction)

Should you be included?

We’re calling on UK companies to review the landscape – see the link below – and to get in touch with our Energy Launchpad team with any suggestions. If you feel your organisation should be included in the infographic, or should be mapped differently, we’d like to hear from you.
