edie launches free business guide to energy storage
Companies and organisations looking to capitalise on the benefits of energy storage now have access to a new edie business guide which breaks down everything you need to know about the technology.
Produced in association with edie's supporting partner EDF Energy, the business guide to energy storage guide is ideal for any sustainability professional or energy manager considering battery technology for their business.
Energy storage provides grid stability during electricity outages and reduces the need to import electricity via interconnectors. For businesses, meanwhile, the technology helps to maintain reliable supply, reduce wastage and save money.
But how much does an energy storage system cost? What are the key considerations that must be made ahead of deploying the technology? And how is the UK energy storage market maturing?
The business guide to energy storage answers all these key questions and more, forming a comprehensive, easy-to-understand outline of everything you need to know about energy storage technology.
Quoted within the guide is EDF Energy’s director of energy solutions Vincent de Rul, who provides a viewpoint on energy storage for UK businesses.
He said: “The National Grid needs UK businesses to implement onsite generation and battery storage, to help balance the network and keep it stable. Batteries have been in the spotlight for quite some time now. Prices are coming down and forecasts for growth are trending upwards.
“Battery storage is an essential part of adapting your energy use for net zero-– ensuring you lower costs, make money, and meet your low carbon targets.”
