There was a record amount of rooftop solar deployed in Q3, with 97MW installed on homes and businesses around the UK.
Solar Media’s Mollie McCorkindale takes a look at the surge in battery storage planning applications this year, as the pipeline for utility-scale projects hits 20GW.
As UK battery energy storage capacity drives past the 1GW mark, the industry is now plotting its advance towards the next sizeable hurdle. Solar Media Market Research's Mollie McCorkindale details how the UK's battery energy storage market can move towards 10GW of operational capacity.
Utility-scale battery storage project activity started for real during 2020, with a strong pipeline of projects built up in the last few years and ready for deployment in 2021 and beyond. Solar Media Market Research's Lauren Cook and Mollie McCorkindale take a look under the hood of Ireland's battery storage pipeline.
With the Republic of Ireland finally giving the green light to the country's Renewable Electricity Support Scheme, solar developers that have waited years for their opportunity are gearing up for delivery. Lauren Cook, analyst at Solar Media Market Research, outlines the current state of the Irish market and what kinds of projects are in with a chance of support next year.
Halfway through 2018 and large-scale battery storage in the UK has reached over 450MW installed capacity, with around 250MW being completed this year alone. Solar Media Market Research analyst Lauren Cook looks back at how we got here, and what we can learn from the rapidly growing large-scale pipeline.
Over 9,000MWh of battery energy storage could be deployed in Britain over the next five years as the sector enjoys a trend towards “explosive growth” driven largely by the country's clean energy transition, a market analyst has said.
