Is battery storage a
good investment opportunity?


Opportunities for battery storage following expansion of renewable energy infrastructure

New analysis from LCP’s Energy Analytics team highlights how rapidly scaling up battery storage capacity in Great Britain could avoid large volumes of renewable energy wastage and provide clean energy to power millions of homes. The report examines the main revenue sources available to investors from battery storage assets, how these markets will change over time and the opportunities for power traders.

We find that battery storage could be a lucrative investment due to efforts to decarbonise power markets resulting in increased demand for battery storage.

What’s inside the report:

  • An in-depth look at the fundamentals of the four key revenue streams available to batteries: arbitrage, balancing, capacity provision and frequency response
  • Analysis of the opportunities available now
  • Our views on how these markets will develop.

Spending on the UK’s energy storage infrastructure is likely to rise over the coming years. As the system changes and technologies mature, we expect the business case for battery storage to change in part due to their unique capabilities allowing them to provide value in multiple markets.
