Lithium batteries simply the cheaper choice for UK businesses’ energy needs
The UK’s government has shied away from supporting large volumes of solar and other distributed energy technologies through subsidies, but commercial and industrial energy storage and solar-plus-storage could be a huge market opportunity in Britain and abroad.
This morning (16th October), on the opening day of the annual Solar and Storage Live exhibition and conference in Birmingham, England, Lord Deben, Chairman of the government’s own Committee on Climate Change launched a scathing attack on the current administration’s lack of ambition on the issue of climate change and supporting decarbonisation.
However, the solar industry pushes on nonetheless, albeit in a diminished form from the days of feed-in tariffs (FiTs) and other incentive schemes and programmes such as the Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) for larger-scale wind and solar. However, energy storage is now bringing economic viability to various types of distributed energy solution.
