The UK’s energy needs are changing and with this, comes the need to change the way we manage energy distribution. Energy demand is becoming more dynamic, and this combined with the amount of increasing renewable energy generation, means our transmission network will have to become more flexible and responsive.

Energy storage will undoubtedly have a key role to play in the future of energy management and, with UK electricity storage capacity currently totalling 4GW, National Grid expects this figure to rise rapidly to 6GW by 2020 and up to 10.7GW by 2050.
