In a world where energy use is changing rapidly, and supplies are increasingly from variable and local sources, there is a requirement to have a more flexible energy system that is reliable and low carbon. One option is to increase levels of energy storage across scales, in order to meet consumer needs including for thermal, electrical and mobility demands. The scope of such energy storage covers a wide family of technologies with different cost and performance characteristics, from batteries used in consumer goods to underground reservoirs holding hot water.

The Supergen Energy Storage Network+ will launch a Research and Innovation Roadmap for Energy Storage that assesses the potential role of energy storage in the UK’s future energy system and identifies the contribution of research and innovation to meeting the challenges .

Join us for the official Roadmap launch, featuring reaction and insight from energy experts from research, industry and policy (final agenda TBC).

  • Dr Jonathan Radcliffe (Roadmap Lead, University of Birmingham).
  • Mr Philip Sharman (Evenlode Associates)
  • UK government representative (TBC)
  • Professor Dan Gladwin (University of Sheffield
  • Dr Alexandra Gormally (Lancaster University)
