Scotland: the green energy storage superpower? | online

5 September 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In Scotland, it has been said that we are at the start of a hydro-pumped storage renaissance. Could we take this opportunity to become a green energy storage superpower?

The UK has ambitious plans to produce large quantities of electricity from offshore wind generation by 2030. Scotland is central to this green transition, with half of this energy to be produced here. But how will we store it?

It has been said that we are at the start of a hydro-pumped storage renaissance in Scotland. This is the most efficient large-scale storage solution we currently have. Couple technological development with the production of green hydrogen, Scotland could seize this as an opportunity to become a green energy storage superpower.

In this talk, learn about the latest developments in energy storage solutions and explore the trajectory of Scotland’s energy storage industry. Discuss the relationship between the green transition and the socio-political development of Scotland and hear about how we can harness the engineering legacy of hydro and the power of the Glens. Learn about projects like Coire Glas, the first large-scale pumped hydro storage scheme to be developed in the UK for more than 40 years.
