Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    This paper evaluates the modern trends of energy storage in the UK and reviews its application in the context of wind energy systems. This research takes into account the advantages/disadvantages and trends of different technical options of energy storage technology based on modern and future industry and government projects. Additionally, this research identifies and quantifies, in terms of profitability, the revenue streams available in the UK for energy storage projects, using the most up-to-date information. This research also identifies the revenue streams suitable for wind power and energy storage, and discusses the current UK regulatory framework for its implementation. The results of this research are of high value for those looking into the techno-economic aspects of wind energy integration with energy storage and provide a framework where industry and universities can position development or research efforts with a fresh view of the opportunities ahead.
