Energy bills are continuing to rise. The repercussions on homeowners and businesses are widely felt and reported. Further, the UK is facing a cost-of-living crisis that is partially caused by rising energy costs. International events impact on energy security and fossil-fuel prices across the globe due to the international nature of commodity and energy trading so it is difficult for the UK to insulate itself from these geopolitical impacts if there is continued reliance on these fuels.
With this backdrop, there is an undisputed need to increase the amount of homegrown, renewable energy to ensure a cheap and secure supply of energy to meet current and future demand. As well as the wind and solar systems that generate the electricity, complimentary storage to smooth out supply and demand is required. This is where BESS fits in.
