GridBeyond joins the Electricity Storage Network to help shape the policy agenda for the energy storage sector and further support the industry transition to net zero

GridBeyond a world leading technology player for managing distributed and flexible energy resources has joined the Electricity Storage Network (ESN), a leading industry group that enables the development and growth of UK energy storage assets.

The ESN was established in 2008 as the UK industry group dedicated to electricity storage. It includes members such as electricity storage manufacturers and suppliers, project developers, users, electricity network operators, consultants, academic institutions, and research organisations. The network discusses sector developments looks at market opportunities and business models for storage in existing and emerging markets. It also looks at the role of new technologies in the energy storage sector and how these can be accessed by the industry. Finally, it looks at how creating a sustainable industry can support the transition to net zero.

Michael Phelan, GridBeyond CEO and Co-Founder, said:

”The difference between current installed capacity of energy storage technologies and estimations as to what will be required suggests there is significant potential for investment in battery storage technologies. The key question is how we deliver this pipeline in a sustainable and responsible way with transparent supply chains from an environmental and social perspective.

“We are very pleased to become members of ESN and have the opportunity to discuss market opportunities and look at how energy storage technologies can support the power grid of the future.”

Rachel Hayes, Director of the Electricity Storage Network, commented:

“The Electricity Storage Network has a track record of driving change across UK policy, markets and regulation to unlock the role of electricity storage in decarbonising our energy system. Success is only a result of our growing and innovative group of members committed to progressing our collective mission to achieve a zero-carbon future. We are delighted to have GridBeyond joining us at this crucial time for the storage sector and look forward to drawing on their experience managing distributed and flexible energy sources to spark change at the cutting-edge of the energy system.”
