ERP Workshop: Barriers to System-Wide Energy Storage
Date: Thursday 14 April 2016
On 14 April 2016, ERP organised and facilitated a workshop to discuss Barriers to System-Wide Energy Storage. The workshop is part of a wider ongoing project which will result in a publication in October 2016 (objectives below).
A broad range of workshop attendees from across the energy system – from the electricity, gas, heat, hydrogen and transport sectors – specifically with knowledge relating to the financial, legal, political, commercial and regulatory challenges for energy storage – were invited to help ERP uncover the barriers and in turn, inform our project work.
Documents provided in support of this workshop include:
- Key Insights from the day
- Results from an interactive voting session that workshop attendees took part in on the day;
- A full detailed summary of workshop paper with notes of per table discussions, a panel session & debate, and presentation from DECC regarding its recent ‘Towards a Smart Energy System’ publication and upcoming Call for Evidence on Smart Energy.
Additionally, presentations from the workshop are provided below:
- Welcome Slides: About ERP & The Barriers to System-Wide Energy Storage project work (Peter Bance, Origami Energy & ERP Project Chair)
- Whole System Energy Storage: Context & Energy Storage, The New Holy Grail? (Keith MacLean, ERP Co-chair)
