As the costs fall and technologies develop, energy storage is playing an increasingly significant role in the UK’s energy system. The uptake of commercial and industrial applications of storage will also support the broader economy, since reducing energy costs leads to improved productivity, increased competitiveness and potential new growth opportunities.

Businesses with large electricity demands stand to become the biggest benefactors of energy storage, but development has yet to match potential. Charging Forward, the STA Storage Event will explore this gap and what is required to maximise energy storage value, versatility, and market volume in the C&I sector.

At this half-day conference, key stakeholders from a range of industries will discuss how positioning storage at the core of integrated energy management systems, either as stand-alone assets or in conjunction with onsite generation, can lead to decreased energy use, lower carbon emissions, improved performance and operational resilience and multiple revenue streams.

Three sessions will assess market potential by providing insight on end-users, the government policies that affect C&I projects, along with trade-offs of different technologies and financing options, and the regulatory risks that underline these strategies. Previous STA Storage events have attracted over 100 high quality attendees from the energy storage and solar power sectors, electricity network providers, investors, academia, policymakers and regulators.
