New Solar Power Option For UK

The UK government hopes to no longer support subsidies for solar power and other distributed energy technologies, but commercial and industrial energy storage and solar power + energy storage may become new opportunities in the UK and overseas.

On the opening day of the annual solar and energy storage live exhibition and conference in Birmingham, England, Lord Deben, chairman of the UK Government Climate Change Committee, criticized the current government for its lack of ambitions on climate change issues and support for decarbonization.
Although the solar power generator solar power industry has gradually reduced subsidies from feed-in tariffs (FiTs) and other incentive programs and programs (such as large renewable energy certificates for wind and solar). However, energy storage systems will bring economic viability to various types of distributed energy solutions.

In many cases, energy storage in the commercial and industrial (C&I) industry (including energy storage used in conjunction with solar power) can help companies significantly reduce energy costs. But installing batteries requires a high level of capital expenditure.

Juan Carlos Ordonez, managing director of Spanish lithium battery manufacturer and supplier Cegasa, said that Cegasa has signed an agreement to supply batteries for Wattstor, a UK energy management and energy storage system manufacturer, with a capacity of just under 1MW.

Ordonez said, "Lithium batteries for commercial and consumer applications have been economically viable, and lithium batteries are used at 100%. The use of lithium batteries in the industrial market is also growing rapidly, albeit at different stages. ”

Ordonez predicts that even with regard to the cost of air conditioning equipment, battery installation and connectivity, and other indicators, lithium batteries may eventually reach 80% adoption rate.

“The current application rate of solar power generator lithium batteries in industrial systems is about 3%-6%, but the market potential is indeed huge,” Ordanez said. In general, most of Cegasa's commercial projects use lithium batteries to replace lead-acid batteries.

Stephen Jones, CEO of Wattstor, also said that another aspect of the energy storage project for commercial and industrial (C&I) projects is to save on electricity bills.

Jones said, “We do some work in the healthcare industry. Some industry sectors are not just for investment returns, but for power supply security, such as dental clinics. The UK will also approve new legislation on diesel generators in the future. Can system."
