New Energy Storage Brochure
30 November 2022
The publishing of an Energy Storage Brochure in collaboration between the University of Manchester, Imperial College and the University of Melbourne
A new energy storage brochure has been published in collaboration between the University of Manchester, Imperial College and the University of Melbourne, highlighting the requirements and options to meet Net-Zero via various energy storage methods such as electrolysers, thermal storage batteries, liquid air energy storage and more. The brochure highlights the untapped opportunities to be realised by adopting a cross-vector approach (including heat storage, hybrid gas-electricity heating systems and using renewable power) to make hydrogen in the UK, and Storage can play an important role in creating smart districts and distributed control could be a key approach to facilitate the distributed control of energy assets providing valuable energy system services without unduly affecting consumers.
Tremendous opportunities are available to cost-effectively decarbonise the UK energy-system by deploying multi-energy forms of storage, while developing new business-cases for old and new technologies.
