UK Energy Storage Observatory

This resource links to an external website containing a dataset collection


UKESTO showcases national energy storage innovation, describing energy storage facilities in the UK and providing data from test beds.

In 2012 the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded the Energy Storage Capital Grants call, where fifteen institutions received 30m pounds of funding across five consortia for the development and testing of energy storage technologies that span application areas. The consortia leads were the University of Birmingham, Imperial College, Loughborough University, the University of Manchester, and the University of Sheffield.

In 2016 these institutions secured a 4m pound investment from EPSRC to deliver the Multi-scale Analysis for Facilities for Energy Storage (MANIFEST) project, where the UK Energy Storage Observatory is a major deliverable.
