As part of the £1bn BEIS Net Zero Innovation Portfolio, SICE is managing the delivery of a number of innovation programmes focused on smart energy innovation. The SICE Energy Storage Innovation team is currently delivering on two flagship projects, “Longer Duration Energy Storage Innovation” and the “Storage at Scale” Projects. This event will showcase the work being carried out by projects funded under these Energy Storage Programmes.

The aim of the event was to help provide further collaborative opportunities for the projects to expand their projects with additional partners or end users.

The event featured presentations from BEIS on how they are supporting long duration energy storage and policy updates, pitch sessions from the projects, investment considerations plus other opportunities for collaboration, funding and support.
