Energy Storage Systems

Innova is developing renewable energy hubs across the UK and Energy Storage Systems (ESS) are a key part of our long-term strategy.

Read on to learn more about ESS, including what it is, why it is needed, and how Innova are standing at the forefront UK energy storage development.

What is ESS?

ESS is a device that stores the energy generated from solar and/or wind farms. Currently, most ESS is in the form of two- or four-hour battery systems, however new longer duration storage technologies are beginning to merge. As renewable energy generation is intermittent, ESS help to balance this by storing electricity at times of peak demand.  

Why do we need ESS?

The UK has a legally binding target to achieve Net Zero by 2050, and has committed to fully decarbonising the electricity network by 2035. This means that many low carbon and renewable energy developments are now needed across the UK.

Energy Storage Systems are widely recognised as one of the key solutions to effectively integrate additional large-scale intermittent renewables in electric systems.

Energy Storage Systems are leading the way in balancing demand for electricity and providing flexibility to the supply of electricity in terms of where it can be stored on the network, and the times when it can be utilised. They are a crucial component of the delivery of net zero targets. 

What sets Innova’s ESS solutions apart?


Innova have been active in the renewable developments since 2014.

As a leading independent renewable energy developer, our mission is to support the delivery of utility scale renewable energy projects using multi-technologies fit for the transition to Net Zero. Our in-house team of renewable energy industry experts and trusted consultants have extensive experience delivering renewable energy projects across the United Kingdom.  

As such, we are a pioneering force in the renewable energy sector, proudly standing at the forefront of innovation as the leading developer of energy storage projects in the United Kingdom. With a vast pipeline of 26GW spanning 20+ Transmission connected sites, Innova is driving the UK’s transition to a cleaner, more resilient energy future.  

What’s more, we work closely with leading route-to-market providers to develop efficient solutions for both stand-alone storage and storage systems that share grid connection with renewable power plants.
