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 report provides a detailed review of the operational effectiveness of a valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) which has been installed as part of the NINES Project at Lerwick Power Station (LPS) on a distribution network operated by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) in Shetland. The grid-scale VRLA BESS plays an important role in the time-shifting of conventional generation and renewable energy on the Shetland network.
