Solar and storage are a perfect partnership. Storage extends solar’s power beyond the time the sun is in the sky, allowing energy producers to use solar 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This opens up a whole new world of opportunities for solar, allowing solar technologies to be used to their full potential.
Self-consumption will be the driver for solar demand in the European Union; small-scale electric storage solutions will have a crucial role in expanding onsite consumption. At the same time, utility-scale battery storage will be increasingly used in providing additional services for stabilizing the grid when using large amounts of flexible solar power. Moreover, Solar & Storage is the key to enabling a renewable baseload, while also reducing costs for networks. This will also lead to stable electricity prices and the empowerment of consumers and businesses.
