Open Consultation: Facilitating the deployment of large-scale and long-duration electricity storage: call for evidence

Building a stronger, greener future by fighting coronavirus, tackling climate change, unleashing innovation and making the UK a great place to work and do business.

BEIS is seeking evidence about barriers to the deployment of large-scale and long-duration electricity storage, and on different approaches for supporting the deployment of these technologies.

Closes at 11:45pm on 28 September 2021    Find out more here.

Consultation description
Large-scale and long-duration electricity storage could provide an important role in decarbonising our energy system, for example by storing renewable power and discharging it over periods of low wind. However there is evidence that it faces market challenges that mean it may struggle to deploy at scale.

This call for evidence seeks information to help us understand in more detail:

  • the barriers within the current market
  • how these might be addressed
  • the risks that may be associated with potential interventions to support the deployment of large-scale and long-duration electricity storage
