09:00 09:20 Registration
09:20 09:25 Seamus Garvey, Nottingham University: Welcome and Opening Remarks
09:25 09:30 Jihong Wang, University of Warwick: Overview of IMAGES project
Presentations – chair: Prof David Elmes, Warwick Business School
09:30 10:00 Ian Wilkinson (Siemens): The role of Green Ammonia in decarbonising energy systems: practical demonstration and economic considerations
Key points:
  • Ammonia provides a practical and scalable carbon-free hydrogen vector.
  • Ammonia synthesised using renewable energy has the potential to contribute significantly to the decarbonisation of energy systems – including mobility and heat.
  • Siemens is constructing a “Green Ammonia” energy storage demonstration system in the UK, which is due to be commissioned early next year.
10:00 10:30 Adrian Alford (Innovatium): Integrating energy storage at the demand end using Liquid Air
Key points:
  • Liquid air can be used to provide major demand-side flexibility for compressed air users
  • Capital expenses associated with this storage much smaller per MW and per MWh than for “electricity storage”
  • Effective roundtrip efficiencies very high and lifetimes very long
10:30 11:00 Stuart Nelmes (Highview Power): Liquid air for electricity storage
Key points:
  • Decreasing grid flexibility calls for new solutions over a range of timescales and at a variety of locations
  • LAES offers especially strong potential for long-duration (>10hrs) storage with no requirement for special geography/geology
  • LAES integrates especially well with sources of coldness (e.g. LNG imports) and sources of waste heat (e.g. OCGTs)
11:00 11:20 Coffee and Tea Break
11:20 11:50 Christian Thiel (Energy-Nest): Key commercial benefits of thermal energy storage (TES) as demonstrated by EnergyNest
Key points:
  • The principals of EnergyNest’s TES technology
  • Relevant TES markets and value drivers
  • Deep-dive industrial applications: harvesting sleeping economic potentials
11:50 12:20 Haris Patsios (Newcastle University): Hybridizing energy storage systems to improve cost-effectiveness and expand service range
Key points:
  • Combinations of energy storage technologies with complementary characteristics can unlock a wider set of network services and increase revenues against using a single technology
  • Co-locating storage combinations with RE generation units provides major benefits in resolving power network issues and can assist decarbonisation
  • Energy storage technology selection and sizing as investment tools can be used to inform the design of new services and improve existing ones
12:20 13:05 Poster Session Pitches: Chair Mr. Gordon Waddington CEO of Energy Research Accelerator”
13:05 14:00 Lunch and Poster Viewing
14:00 14:15 Antoinette Sandbach MP: The political will behind clean energy and its implications for energy storage
14:15 14:45 Matthew Rowe (DNV-GL): UK electricity system flexibility – What is the future role of energy storage?
Key points:
  • The future electricity system behaviour and the requirements for flexibility services
  • The range of available energy storage technologies that extends beyond batteries
  • Hybrid energy storage systems offer commercially-real attractions, where are the opportunities and what is blocking those that are we are not pursuing today?
14:45 15:15 Giw Zanganeh (ALACAES): Developing an adiabatic compressed air energy storage solution for large-scale applications
 Key points:
  • World’s first pilot plant built and tested in the Swiss Alps in 2016
  • Low cost, high efficiency, very low environmental impact and long life-time
  • Multiple use cases for grid stabilization and optimization.
15:15 15:45 Goran Strbac (Imperial College London): Energy storage: a game changer for the energy market
Key points:
  • Role and value of energy storage in supporting cost effective transition to low carbon system
  • Multi-service provision by energy storage
  • Need for change of energy market design – establishing business case for energy storage
15:45 16:10 Coffee and Tea Break
16:10 17:00 Discussion Panel: ‘Prospect for Hybrid and Integrated Energy Storage – technical and political aspects’. Chair – Prof Paul Ekins from UCL
17:00 17:10 Closing Words
17:10 18:00 Networking Session
