The IHS Markit energy storage research team attended Solar and Storage Live in Birmingham, United Kingdom on 18th September 2019. As one of the major industry conferences specifically focusing on the United Kingdom, the event was very well attended. Solar and Storage Live raised several key questions regarding the next stage in the United Kingdom’s transition towards a cleaner, more renewable driven network. Developers and investors are looking forward tentatively as the lucrative solar feed-in tariffs have ended and there is no replacement. The opportunity for storage is also unclear, due to a saturation of the frequency regulation market and other revenue streams being under review by the regulator Ofgem. Electric vehicle (EV) uptake is creating numerous challenges - from demand requirements to building a charging network infrastructure - for both transmission and distribution system operators (TSO/DSOs). As well as the inherent uncertainty surrounding Brexit creating more questions than answers.
