The need to manage the frequency of the National Grid is increasing and the ability to use batteries to do this is developing rapidly.
As the UKs electricity demand has changed significantly in recent years so has the characteristics of the supply grid. The grid is experiencing frequency fluctuations due to increased demand and renewable generators, which cause considerable concern for the grid operator, the National Grid.
The National Grid is therefore continually looking for suppliers to help them balance their network. This can be achieved through services such as battery storage of electricity.
Suppliers want to develop their solutions on land adjacent or near to sub-stations and this creates an opportunity for land owners to receive alternative rental income.
We advise land owners to understand the potential for development upon their land and select the right development partner in this new and developing area.
