Understanding the role of energy storage in the UK's Power Grid

Organised by:

SCI’s Energy Group in collaboration with the Hydrogen Economy Innovation Network and the Cross-Sector Battery Systems Innovation Network

SCI, London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


This workshop will discuss the role energy storage will need to play within the future energy grid, as it becomes increasingly fed by intermittent renewables and as the need for grid balancing increases.

We will consider various energy storage technologies, storage timescales (up to, and including, seasonal energy storage), integration challenges etc, and will be considering energy storage through a number of lenses, including:

  1. Transmission & Distribution
  2. Technology & Innovation
  3. Domestic Storage options
  4. Critical raw material/circularity considerations
  5. Policy and Regulation required to enable all this

We would like to identify the key topics of interest, opportunity and concern within the energy storage community, with a view to holding deeper dives into key topics during subsequent workshops. 


This event will be of interest to any stakeholders looking to share and/or develop their subject knowledge on energy storage. This includes but is not limited to network operators, technology developers/ manufacturers, innovators, policy makers, regulators, and academics.

This workshop is available by invitation with limited places available to other interested parties. If you have not received an invite but would like to attend, please email callum.yong@soci.org with your name, organisation and job role.

About the Hydrogen Economy Innovation Network
The Hydrogen Economy Innovation Network (formerly SIG) is creating a non-competitive advisory group to pool knowledge from existing hydrogen communities to validate views on the current challenges to enabling low-carbon hydrogen production at scale and cost.

About the Battery Systems Innovation Network
Co-funded by KTN and the Faraday Battery Challenge, the Cross-Sector Battery Systems (CSBS) Innovation Network aims to create an open and collaborative cross-sectoral community for researchers and innovators in battery manufacturing (including next-generation batteries), the related supply chain and end-users.
