Speakers announced for edie’s webinar on onsite renewables and energy storage

How, exactly, does energy storage work? What are the business benefits of deploying commercial battery systems? And how can they interact with other onsite technologies such as renewable energy systems to create a ‘decentralised’ business? These are the questions that aimed to be answered in a new webinar on the topic.


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?

This free masterclass webinar, supported by EDF Energy, gives edie readers everything they need to know when it comes to utilising energy storage technology: what it means, where it may work for their organisations, and the legislative and policy frameworks around the issue.

The masterclass on energy storage will also provide listeners with the ability to explore exactly ‘how’ such technologies work and can be applied – exploring how onsite energy storage projects are delivered, and what results it has brought to the end-user organisation.

This live, online masterclass will help sustainability and energy professionals get to grips with battery storage and how these systems can be deployed alongside renewable energy to accelerate the transition to net-zero carbon business.
