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 for night-time for solar plants
  • Storage of energy to compensate for wind farms
  • 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.
