The UK Could Install 12 Gigawatts of Energy Storage by 2021

Britain could have a 12-gigawatt battery market by 2021, according to a parliamentary policy group. The paper was written by the U.K. Renewable Energy Association (REA) and an All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Energy Storage, an interest group made up of members of the House of Lords and House of Commons.

In practice, a medium deployment scenario of 8 gigawatts by 2021, up from 60 megawatts of battery storage today, is more plausible, concludes the position paper .
