This conference assesses next steps for energy storage in the UK. It takes place as the Government prepares its response to its smart energy system consultation. It also comes with the Government looking into the feasibility of a new research institution specialising in battery and grid technologies, and energy storage.

Delegates will discuss issues surrounding concerns over market access and grid connections, as well as Ofgem’s role and - as part of their new Future Insights Series that outlines the future challenges for the energy system - options for facilitating a greater number of decentralised energy programs and smart systems.

The agenda will also bring out latest thinking on priorities for collaboration amongst key stakeholders to assess advances in energy storage research and innovation, so as to support the transition of battery technology to large-scale storage projects.
