A seminar in London in June will ask: ‘What’s next for the grid?’ Their proposed answer is: energy storage. It will be ‘informative and insightful’ says the Institute for Engineering and Technology [IET].
How much of an additional cost burden could this place on UK electricity consumers, we might ask.
IET: The development of energy storage is vital to the sustained operation of the UK’s busy grid network, carbon grid and transport system, maintaining supply and bridging the gap in peak conditions.
Find out in greater detail how energy storage is deployed in the GB system and what the current landscape is for this technology.
You will hear from industry leaders who will examine and explore the impact on infrastructure including standards and the new RIIO regime, the practicalities and technical issues of storage with an overview of what we can expect from storage in the future taking into consideration technology development, the changes in the value of storage and using storage to supply new services.
This is an informative and insightful IET seminar, offering you fantastic opportunities to network with colleagues and peers plus:
Hear the latest insight and research from leading energy experts
Debate the possibility of such development
Recognise the risks and opportunities available
Understand Energy storage as an enabler for the Smart Grid and renewable power
Network with key thinkers and strategists
Goran Strbac, Director of UK Centre for Grid Scale Energy Storage at Imperial College will discuss the role and value of energy in the future GB electricity system addressing the importance of storage in our energy system and the competition to electricity storage plus an examination of the changes to distribution design standards to enable the security of supply.
Sessions will cover
Role and value of energy storage in the future GB electricity system
Storage technology – present status and future developments
The GB storage landscape
Standards for electricity storage
Operation of energy storage
Operation of storage in network constraint management
Technical issues in electricity storage
Our Storage Wish List – the system operators’ views
Panel discussion on ‘the next steps for storage’
