Long Duration Energy Storage Would Reduce The UK’d Gas Usage By 10 Megatonnes By 2035

The title of this post, is the same as that of this press release on the Highview Power web site.

The press release gives these three bullet points.

  • UK has wasted over 1,300 GWh of wind since the start of the energy crisis in September 2021 due to an inability to store excess generation – enough to power 500,000 homes a day.
  • A new survey from YouGov, commissioned by Highview Power, reveals that 43% of UK adults think the UK imports too much gas, rising to 54% among Conservative voters at the 2019 General Election.
  • Long-duration energy storage (LDES) would reduce UK’s gas usage by 10 megatonnes in 2035 and save the grid around £2 billion a year, passing on savings of up to £50 a year.

In Highview Power’s Plan To Add Energy Storage To The UK Power Network, I talked about Highview Power’s possible 30 GWh CRYOBattery.

This project has not been fully revealed and I expect something will be announced before the end of this year.
