Disruptor Series: Energy Storage – New Technologies & Major Developments

Monday, 26th April 2021 0945hrs – 1130hrs

This webinar is part of a new series on the future of the construction industry which are taking place over the next 12 months, and will explore the next big trends, innovations and challenges the industry needs to prepare for.

With the ever increasing capacity of renewable energy which is set to consistently contribute over 50% of the UK’s energy in coming years, there is a huge requirement for energy storage to ensure a consistency of supply. The market for energy storage is growing quickly, with a 13.5 GW total pipeline of projects and alternative battery technologies set to be utilised, including ammonia, hydrogen, pumped storage hydropower and compressed air.

We will hear from some of the industry’s biggest players on their upcoming developments, why the energy is set to play an important role in maintaining the UK’s energy supply and how it is vital in enabling the renewable energy revolution..

Speakers for this event include:

Alicja Kowalewska,
Commercial Manager, Energy Storage
Mark Wilson,
Chief Executive
Michelle Davies,
International Head of Clean Energy and Sustainability
Alex Haffner,
Development Manager

Alicja will discuss their market leading approach to investing in battery storage projects and why a large increase in energy storage capacity is needed to maintain the stability of our electricity supply, as renewables make up an every greater proportion of our energy supply.

She has personally advised on over 10GW of renewable energy projects principally providing advice on M&A, investments and joint venture transactions. She is actively involved in policy and regulation on clean energy and will provide an overview of the energy storage sector in the UK, discussing the factors driving its growth and the increasing importance it will play in supporting our energy supply and wider economy.
  • National Grid ESO – Alex works in the Future Energy Scenarios team at National Grid ESO, which is working towards decarbonising our energy system as we move towards the net zero 2050 target. They are working to ensure we can continue to balance the grid as electricity demand increases and evolves, as we come to rely more heavily on electric vehicles. He will provide an overview of National Grid ESO’s work to enable the development of battery storage capacity and discuss the long term picture for the market in the UK.
