Our Energy Storage Forum is for all energy storage technologies at all scales and is the largest group of its kind in the UK, with over 200 active members from across a broad range of technologies.

REA sees energy storage as the missing piece to energy policy in the UK, as it can balance supplies and demand to help deliver the low carbon energy when needed. The Energy Storage Forum’s goal is ensure energy storage is incentivised and supported appropriately.

The forum works closely with Government and officials on policy areas including incentives, planning, building regulations and taxation. It also develops technical and training standards, where it can rely on the support of other REA forums working on issues such as decentralised energy and grid connection.
