In this presentation EASE will provide an overview of innovative solutions to some of the problems identified by the UK system operator, using new long and short duration storage technologies.

Being an island, the UK is likely to face renewable integration challenges earlier than other countries in Europe. National Grid identified needs for black start, dynamic VAR and solutions to tackle lower levels of inertia. A hybrid system comprised of flywheels, supercapacitors and liquid air energy storage can address specific services optimising utilisation of each technology and maximizing the value delivered to the grid.
