Now, energy storage is becoming more and more important for the following reasons:
- Storage of energy from solar plants for night-time demand
- Storage of energy to compensate for wind farms
- Storage to smooth daily peaks
Energy storage is not an easy option in terms of technical, commercial, and environmental challenges. But there appears to be a more sustained effort to find suitable solutions. Mott MacDonald can help in this process.
- Technology reviews
- Smart networks
- Grid connections
- Environmental permits
- Power flows
- Managing peak demand
Peak installed capacity can be reduced.
