The UK’s Department of Business has launched a competition offering up to £20 million (US$26.2m) for “innovative, replicable solutions that could provide a market competitive alternative to conventional commercial large scale energy storage technologies.”

To be eligible for the competition funds, projects must demonstrate “a target minimum output power of 30MW or minimum capacity of 50MWh.”

The scope of the competition includes “a broad range of large-scale energy storage technologies over a range of durations, capacity and response times.”
