How can we build economically viable grid-scale energy storage?

14 January 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Speaker: Win Rampen

Chair of Energy Storage at the University of Edinburgh

This talk will explore the problems and possible solutions of energy storage. There is a severe mismatch between de-carbonised generation – most of which cannot be scheduled – and instantaneous demand on the electricity grid. Win’s vision is to replace conventional power stations with a network of storage facilities, which can aggregate and be used to smooth non-firm renewable energy while also providing distributed back-up generation. Win launched SynchroStor in 2018 to develop and commercialise grid-scale pumped heat energy storage. He is a co-founder of Artemis Intelligent Power Ltd, an engineering R&D company that spun out of the University of Edinburgh in 1994.
