S&C Electric Company has collaborated with Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution to start a Community Energy Storage project with the aim of achieving ‘Zero Carbon Homes’ in Slough, UK. This is part of the UK’s efforts to achieve 15% renewables by 2020.
The pilot will consist of 3 25 kWh lithium-ion batteries connected to the homes to stabilise electricity supply. According to S&C, the CES will also help to integrate electricity from renewable sources (solar in this case), and provide a reliable backup power for its community.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
