Breakfast Briefing: Charging the future – changing markets for grid-scale batteries

The UK is one of the leading global markets for grid scale batteries with installed capacity more than doubling over 2 years from 1.5GW in 2021 to 3.5GW end of 2023.
 
Whilst there is a strong pipeline of projects for 2030, revenues have fallen from the recent high as gas prices stabilise and frequency response markets mature.
 
Join our panel of experts (owner/ optimiser / network operator/ analyst) to hear their views on how the GB market might unfold as we discuss the role of batteries in:

  • System balancing and review recent changes to increase market access (including the Open Balancing Platform)
  • Maintaining security of supply and changes to the Capacity Market
  • The connections queue

This event is an output of Energy UK’s Storage Workgroup which looks to increase market access for storage.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Naomi Baker, Senior Policy Manager, Energy UK (Chair)
  • Mel Ellis, Regulatory Affairs Manager, Shell
  • Eleanor Haynes, Policy and Regulation Senior Advisor, EDF (UK)
  • Roger Hollies, Chief Technology Officer, Arenko Group
  • Georgina Morris, Head of Capacity Market Policy – Low-Carbon Technologies, Department for Energy Security & Net Zero (DESNZ)
  • Ed Porter, Director of Customer Success, Modo Energy
