What’s inside the report:

  • An in-depth look at the fundamentals of the four key revenue streams available to batteries: arbitrage, balancing, capacity provision and frequency response
  • Analysis of the opportunities available now
  • Our views on how these markets will develop.

Spending on the UK’s energy storage infrastructure is likely to rise over the coming years. As the system changes and technologies mature, we expect the business case for battery storage to change in part due to their unique capabilities allowing them to provide value in multiple markets.
