While the sector is in agreement about its vital role in the furthe development of renewables, the U.K. government is not doing enough to support an industry, say industry stakeholders.
The second day of Solar Energy UK in Birmingham highlighted the U.K.'s community energy potential and expanded on the electricity networks' role in boosting or limiting the country's solar PV sector. Discussions on energy storage largely dominated the event on Wednesday, attracting strong attention among participants and filling the Energy Plus Pavilion venue.
Energy storage was interestingly presented and analysed by a British distribution network operator (DNO), a utilities company, the solar PV sector and other energy stakeholders. All presentations expressed the strategic importance of energy storage for renewables and specifically solar PV.
U.K. storage mechanisms soon?
