Renewable generators are producing more power than ever. With more in variable renewable generation, flexible technologies and storage will play an increasingly important role in balancing and supporting the system, providing a range of services in a flexible, distributed electricity system. Storage technologies are key to increasing and using renewable electricity efficiently, and, in combination with renewables and smart technologies at utility scale through to household level, are already giving opportunities for companies to create new services and business models. Where do we go from here?
