Eunomia Focuses Energy on Storage


Posted in | | by

Head of Energy at Eunomia Adam Baddeley will be joining a line-up of speakers at the end of this month to discuss policy priorities for energy storage in the UK.

Organised by the Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum, the seminar ‘Policy priorities for energy storage in the UK’ has a programme of high profile speakers from across the industry.

Drawing from research in Eunomia’s recent report Investing in UK Electricity Storage and live client projects, Adam will join the panel debate ‘Delivering electricity storage: policy priorities, planning, financing, and assessing commercial barriers’. Other panel members include Barry Hatton; Director of Asset Management for UK Power Networks, Dave Holmes; Managing Director at Quarry Battery Company and Silke Goldberg; Partner at Herbert Smith Freehills.

The forum programme has been developed to focus on the range of different energy storage technologies available and to assess how the UK can manage intermittent generation to ensure a stable supply of energy across the network.

Peter Aldous MP, who chairs the All-Parliamentary Group on Energy Storage, will introduce keynote speakers including: Professor Nigel Brandon, speaking on increasing storage capacity; Phil Sheppard, from the National Grid,  speaking on opportunities for the electricity grid and Phil Lawton speaking on the smart electricity network.

Held at the Royal Society in London on 29th June, Adam will speak at 10:05, preceding sessions from Clive Lewis MP, Julian Wayne, Carla Tully, Joe Warren, Karl Anders and David Capper.
