Energy storage

Energy storage has been around a long time but was more associated with pump storage to meet demand for peak power.

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.
