Energy Storage Workshop

Energy stability: how advanced lead battery energy storage systems support renewables in the electricity network.

A pre-conference technical workshop examining how lead batteries  can provide stability, reliability and continuity amid the growth of renewable energy sources.

14:00-17:00

Monday 16 September

The workshop will cover the following topics

  • Market structure for energy storage for utilities and for domestic and commercial users
  • Competitive position for battery technologies
  • Development of lead batteries for energy storage
  • Technical options for longer asset life
  • Bipolar lead batteries
  • Battery energy storage to support electric vehicle charging
  • Opportunities for hybrid systems with lead batteries and other chemistries
  • Charging and battery management systems
  • Recycling and sustainability
  • Future directions for lead batteries

The decarbonisation of electricity networks with renewable energy sources, principally wind power and solar photovoltaic installations has created a huge opportunity for energy storage technologies.

There are a wide range of battery chemistries that can be adapted for these applications including lead, lithium-ion, sodium-based, zinc-based and flow batteries. Lead batteries are well placed to meet the demands of frequency regulation and electrification.
