      UK Water Utility Makes Storage Splash

      UK water company Northumbrian Water will trial energy storage systems at several of its UK sites next year. The systems, comprising second-life lithium ion batteries from Renault electric cars, will mainly be used to manage energy loads and reduce energy spend by recharging with lower cost electricity at night for providing power during high-cost evening peak times. The batteries will also earn revenues by providing grid balancing services.
