According to a report by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, in the UK, renewable electricity generation was 28.2TWh in the 3rd quarter of 2022, which was 18% higher than 2021’s figure. Further, Solar PV generation was at a record high for Quarter 3, driven by the longer summer sunlight hours and the heatwave.
Solar power is projected to become the world’s largest source of electricity as early as 2035, due to its status as an endlessly renewable source of energy. However, issues arise when it comes to storing energy generated by solar power, due to the need for storing electricity when generation is high but demand is low. Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) solve this issue, and help the national grid maintain stability during periods of fluctuating usage.
MV/LV Substations and UPS & DC Systems work in tandem to provide uninterrupted power supplies, helping with the natural variation in the availability of renewables, storing energy until it is needed.
