Despite widespread disruptions, postponement rather than cancellation will be the outcome for the majority of interrupted projects. Pandemic restrictions have considerably slowed down the pace of non-residential energy storage projects during the second quarter due to challenges related to customer acquisition, installation and interconnection. The market disruption is likely to continue into 2021 and

UK industry says more energy storage is needed, as COVID-19 offers glimpse of low carbon future

With the inclusion of battery energy storage into new building codes and safety standards, it’s obvious just how mainstream storage is today. Electrochemical batteries have been around for more than 100 years and solar photovoltaic (PV) panels have been in use for half a century. During the early days of solar, users deployed PV

Ofgem approves changes ending double charging of storage

Double charging of battery storage is to end, as Ofgem approves changes to the Connection and Use of System Code (CUSC). The UK regulator announced last year it was consulting on the removal of Balancing Service Use of System (BSUoS) charges for energy taken from the grid by storage assets. BSUoS charges allow National
