Grid-scale batteries, renewables, electric vehicle chargers and all sorts of other technologies will play their role in net zero.

Renewables and energy storage will be key enablers to the energy transition. Understanding how to adapt an electricity grid built many years ago to the rapid growth of these modern technologies will be just as important.

This webinar explored the role of battery storage and renewable energy in the UK’s drive to net zero, the impact they will have on infrastructure and how to maximise asset revenues to meet rapidly-changing electricity market opportunities.

We take a deep dive into the current battery storage and renewable capacity installed to date and key drivers, along with UK pipeline activity and outlook for battery deployment in the near to mid- term.

Experts from the Solar Media Market Research team Mollie McCorkindale and Dr Finlay Colville present the latest findings from their exhaustive and comprehensive work.

This is followed by a panel discussion with EDF’s Mark Cox, National Grid head of strategy Claire Dykta and Mikey Clarke from Pivot Power, moderated by editor Andy Colthorpe.
