Energy storage in the UK: An overview - edie.net

The aim of this report is to increase knowledge of the industry among various stakeholders.

According to the Energy storage in the UK report, there are currently 35 standalone grid-connected energy storage projects and 1,500 active residential energy storage systems – ranging from lithium-ion batteries to pumped-hydro schemes – across the UK, as of August 2016. This existing storage operating capacity of 3.23GW is broadly the equivalent to that of the Hinkley Point C nuclear project in Somerset, or to four new large gas power plants.
