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 (June 2017) have two published maps on Energy Storage and a third one planned. These are the British Energy Storage Projects Map, the World Flow Battery Projects map and 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

  • 14th Edition, 2018. First published map available to show the electricity transmission and distribution network in the Scotland – 33kV-400kV and includes substations against a backdrop of areas controlled by Scottish Power and Scottish & Southern Energy. This full-color map shows all generating stations Nuclear, fossil fuel and renewable energy are shown by symbol together with the project name, operator and generating capacity. This includes all projects built or concerned. Covers Wind, Hydro, Biomass, Landfill Gas, Wave, and Tidal as well as conventional power stations. All Offshore Leases for Wind Wave and Tidal are shown including test sites. Publisher, La Tene Maps.

  • Britain - Major Energy Storage Projects Map -1st ed. 2017 This is a first attempt to map out the energy storage projects in Britain. This map shows the actual and proposed utility scale projects that are or grid connected. A set of symbols shows the general type eg battery, pumped hydro storage or compressed air storage. Sub types are shown by colour. There are ten different types of battery storage. 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 maximizing revenue returns.

  • World Flow Battery Storage Projects Map - 1st edition, June 2017 La Tene Map in association with the International Flow Battery Forum (IFBF) have jointly published a map on Flow Battery Projects around the world. The map was produced to coincide with an international conference on flow battery projects held in Manchester, UK at the end of June. There are under 100 flow battery projects in the world spread evenly through the US, Europe, China 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..
