Massive growth in UK energy storage capacity

2 December 2019

The UK’s energy storage sector is enjoying rapid growth, as the roll out of the smart grid technologies that are seen as essential to the development of a cleaner and more flexible energy system continues to outstrip expectations.

Trade body RenewableUK’s recent report providers data showing that the cumulative capacity of planning applications for battery storage projects has increased more than 50 per cent of the past year, from nearly 6,900MW to over 10,500MW today.

The report, entitled Project Intelligence, argues that if the entire pipeline of planned projects is developed it will deliver enough energy storage capacity to fully charge over a million electric vehicles.
