Ofgem has made a “game changer” decision for UK energy storage by confirming that solar farms are able to retain accreditation under the Renewables Obligation (RO) when supplying electricity to batteries.
The Solar Trade Association (STA) has refuted claims made in a recent report that a residential solar array in combination with an energy storage system was not “economically viable”, calling it flawed and lacking in detail.
Green Hedge, a UK renewable energy developer that has diversified into battery energy storage systems, has had an application for a 40MW project approved by local authorities in Derbyshire.
When Theresa May announced there would be a general election on 8 June, you could forgive the public a weary sigh at the thought of a third trip to the ballot box in as many years. And you could forgive those of us in the battery storage sector for wondering whether an election campaign might slow the industry’s momentum.
