Official forecasts state that the National grid is currently dealing with an energy crisis which suggests they don’t have enough power to meet the requirements of households within the UK. This means that this winter Britain is facing its highest risk of black outs in almost a decade. Britain’s electricity supplies will be stretched to the limit, forcing the country to have to think about relying on other emergency measures.
Only last week an additional 500 Megwatts was requested via a Notification of Inadequate System Margin (NISM), which was last issued in 2012.
The evidence from National Grid suggests multiple power cuts may be likely throughout the coming season, and Wattstor provide an affordable solution to this threat. By banking your excess renewable energy in a battery instead of feeding it straight back to the grid, you can have control over when you use your renewable generation, and have a backup if the grid fails.
