Energy Storage is becoming increasingly important as an adjunct to renewable energy projects due to constraints on exporting electricity to the grid at times, as a grid balancing method and a way of generating maximum return from the sale of electricity.

Energy Storage has been around for a long time in the form of Pumped Hydro projects. More recently there has been the development of Compressed Air Storage and Battery Storage. There are are many different types of battery currently in development or at a research stage

We currently  have two published maps on Energy Storage and a third one planned. These are the UK and Ireland Energy Storage Projects Map, the World Flow Battery Projects map. A map on European Energy Storage Projects is currently under Development.

These maps are currently available as printed maps, digital prints or as a pdf file

  • World - Major Flow Battery Projects map - 2nd edition, June 2020 La Tene Map in association with the International Flow Battery Forum (IFBF) have jointly published a new edition of the map on Major Flow Battery Projects around the world. The map was produced to coincide with an international virtual conference on flow battery projects. There are over 250 major flow battery projects shown with one third of them in Europe. The rest are spread evenly through the US, Asia and Australia with a few outliers elsewhere. The map shown the location of the projects by symbol and has the name of the project, capacity, duration and project operator owner attached..

  • UK and Ireland - Major Energy Storage Projects, 1st Edition 2019. Published in association with RenewableUK, The Irish Energy Storage Association and the Electricity Storage Network this map covers over 750 projects between the two countries. The map covers Battery Storage, Pumped Storage, Compressed air Storage, Pumped Heat Storage, Cryogenic storage and Flywheel projects. A set of symbols shows the general type. Each site is shown by location together with the promoter/operator and project capacity. This subsection of the energy industry is in its infancy and will grow as more renewable energy sites (wind, solar & hydro mainly) add storage capacity as a means of maximising revenue returns.  Also energy storage systems are being used for frequency response, peaking power and emergency back up.
