Leaders in the UK and international battery storage space discussed how the industry has rapidly evolved to become a viable business at the heart of the transition to low carbon and renewable energy in this panel session from the Energy Storage Summit 2021.

Held in late February by our publisher Solar Media, the sixth annual Summit was the first to be held online. Although it was a shame to not be meeting in person at a London venue as in previous years, it does mean that we’re able to bring you the video, below.

Moderated by editor Andy Colthorpe, panellists in this keynote address included representatives from the two dedicated utility-scale energy storage investment funds listed on the London Stock Exchange, Gore Street Capital and Gresham House Energy Storage Fund, along with big utility players EDF and Centrica Business Solutions, as well as technology providers Trina Storage and Wärtsilä.

Moderator: Andy Colthorpe, 

Panellists: Daniel Greten – Head of sales for overseas storage at Trina Storage

Ben Guest – Fund manager at Gresham House Energy Storage Fund

Alicja Kowalewska – Investment associate for energy storage at Gore Street Capital

Dr. Neville Towers – Director of wholesale market optimisation at EDF

Björn Ullbro – Vice President for Africa & Europe at Wärtsilä

Jeroen Verbeeck – Sales and sourcing manager at Centrica Business Solutions
