Renewables & Energy Storage

The renewable power sector is one of the key electrical markets in the U.K. and is undergoing a rapid expansion in battery storage, solar PV, onshore wind, offshore wind,  biogas, energy from waste and even some hydro plants. The majority of these plants all have similar goals, to maximise their profitability by optimising the design, whilst ensuring that all necessary performance requirements imposed by the Developer and DNO, or National Grid are met to allow connection to the network.
