Seems like the UK is getting more serious about battery farms now  Smiley

Energy storage firm Pivot Power has announced plans for a £25 million ‘grid-scale’ battery and electric vehicle charging hub on the outskirts of Southampton.

The site will be the first of a proposed 45 location operated by the company, it says, that will combine large-scale battery storage with rapid charging facilities for electric vehicles.

Test Valley borough council has given the company permission to install a 50MW battery at Nursling electricity substation at a cost of up to £25 million, which it expects to be operational by July 2019.

Another battery energy storage system, charge the batteries when the electricity is cheaper and use it at peak times, another smart idea  Smiley 

Also some more info about smart meters.

Rethinking Electricity, interesting topic I'm interested in.  Really to much information presented in the last two vids to comment on.  Nice to see these projects moving forward.

I'm glad you find the topic interesting Carl  Smiley

I think it's going to be one of the biggest changes we see in the 21st century and should help the human race towards a cleaner future.

We can't all work in the sector but we can all do our bit in our every day lives.

I think this could be good news and another step in the right direction.

Scottish Power will become the first major UK energy company to generate all its electricity from wind power instead of coal and gas, after selling its final gas and hydro stations to Drax.

Found this on solid state batteries. Not sure where they're at and no commercial product... yet.

The last I heard, wish I could recall where it was but one of the companies developing solid state batteries had a working prototype that charged very quickly and had a larger capacity than standard lithium iron, it had a problem though, it would discharge itself far too quickly, leaving you with a flat battery in just a few hours or days.
