This allows us to generate sustainable value beyond capital.
Renewable energy produced from naturally occurring resources represents the future of our planet. Sunlight, wind, the movement of water and geothermal heat can all be harnessed to produce power without the environmental impact of burning fossil fuels. The transition to these renewable fuels is already underway, particularly in the power sector where deployment of solar panels and wind turbines is rapidly outstripping new fossil fuel power stations. Generation from these technologies needs support to be seamlessly integrated into global grid systems. This is the role of Gore Street Capital’s energy storage assets under management.
Large-scale batteries and other forms of energy storage have emerged to help balance the supply and demand of increasingly diverse generation sources. Rising output from renewable generators leads to higher volatility on the grid, with power flows varying throughout the day. Systems that receive, store, and deliver energy when needed – often in the form of electricity – have developed rapidly to meet the rising demand for flexibility. Use of storage to balance supply and demand maintains the electricity grid system at the correct frequency to help keep the lights on, while ensuring as much renewable generation as possible is used. Governments, grid system operators, technology companies and the investment community have all recognised this value and are facilitating the growth of energy storage technologies.
