As you know, we’re increasingly producing too much energy from our wind farms and marine turbines:
When this happens, storage is the problem in matching demand to the fluctuations in supply. However, a new large-scale battery storage facility, the first in the UK, is to be built in Broxburn by the Trig company.
The Broxburn facility will story 20MW which is off course only a fraction of our daily needs of around 1 million MW but may herald the start of a trend. Trig, as-a-whole, will have 774MW across Europe.
