Listen on

Episode notes

In this the second episode of our special energy storage boxset series, content editor Andrew Dykes is joined by co-host David Bevan, corporate finance partner at BDO, and by Ben Guest, managing director and head of the New Energy division at alternative asset management group Gresham House.

This episode we’ll be taking a deep dive into possibly the largest and liveliest area of the sector today: battery storage. In less than a decade the UK has moved from having no large-scale battery capacity to more than 1.6GW in operation. 

We look at what’s driving that growth, the hurdles faced by the sector, and importantly what opportunities may lie ahead.

The Megawatt Hour is the a special podcast series brought to you by Energy Voice Out Loud in paid partnership with BDO.
