We have been observing SSE’s (in conjunction with Ofgem) Greenwatt Way project in Slough for a few years now – incase you’re unaware, it’s an interesting development of ten ‘zero carbon’ energy-efficient homes featuring the latest green building technologies, including; solar pv panels, greywater recycling systems, enhanced insulation, smart metering, natural ventilation and more exciting technologies.
Energy storage test
The latest from Greenwatt Way is to test three 25kWh lithium-ion batteries (developed by the S&C Electric Company) which have the capability to store energy from low carbon sources such as solar power. This test is set to determine what the benefits are to low voltage networks of storing energy in this manner. These smaller networks could be utilised to store energy as individuals and businesses begin to transition to energy supply from low carbon sources. Its hoped that if successful, utilising this technology could mean that expensive and disruptive cable replacement could be a thing of the past.
