Challenge

Energy storage facilitates intermittent generation from renewable resources to integrate into the energy mix and help secure the network through ancillary services such as Dynamic Containment (DC) and Firm Frequency Response (FFR). 

Since it makes it possible to overcome the intermittences of renewable energies, energy storage systems are clearly the future of energy, making the green energy available to the greatest number of people, every hour of the day and at night.

Therefore, it is a fast-moving market in which RINA wants to be a major actor.

Approach

In this context, RINA supported SUSI Partners, a private fund manager for sustainable infrastructure investments, in completing the acquisition of four lithium-ion battery storage assets in the UK.
