Coal generation will soon be a thing of the past. The rise of wind, solar & other clean generators is unstoppable as our system becomes greener every year.
Until recently, we were passive energy users, blindly flicking the switch & paying the bill. The modern energy user is aware & engaged. We understand the market & actively participate in it.
The digital age and advancements in technology, communications & materials enable us to make smarter & more informed choices about when & how we consume energy.
Generation is becoming more dispersed. Even our homes & workplaces can now be both generators & consumers of electricity. Our future infrastructure must be intelligent and dynamic, allowing for bi-directional energy flows.
Soon, most of our travel will be electrically powered. Electric vehicles and their associated charging points will greatly increase the demand & strain on our energy system.
Energy storage is fundamental to achieving a low carbon future. The ability to store energy enables us to make smart decisions about when or how to generate & consume it, as well as acting as crucial infrastructure to support a more dynamic & secure network.
Combining energy storage with intelligent devices and real-time data allows organisations to have genuine control of their energy usage as well as visibility of associated cost & carbon impact.
Batteries enable organisations to be rewarded for fluctuating their demand in response to unforeseen network needs. This requirement will increase in line with the uptake of renewable generators.
Energy storage makes energy dispatchable, controllable & portable. This addresses the intermittent generation pattern associated with renewable generators and accelerates the move to a low carbon future.
Weather patterns, political instability and changing demands are causing a constant threat to our energy system. Batteries enable network operators to run a safer & more robust system, reducing the risk of blackouts & system failures.
Batteries offer a rapidly deployable & lower cost solution to the infrastructural challenges associated with the energy transition. They avoid the requirement for otherwise capital-intensive cable & substation upgrades.
