IMAGES stands for Integrated, Market-fit and Affordable Grid-scale Energy Storage. IMAGES is a research project funded by EPSRC, led by the University of Warwick in collaboration with the University of Nottingham, Loughborough University and British Geological Survey. The research team is formed of a group of experienced academics from a number of related fields including: Power and Control, Dynamics, Renewable Energy, Geology, Mathematics, Economics, Energy Security, Electrical Networks and Systems. Our research is focused on two main energy storage technologies CAES and HTTS.


i-STUTE is an interdisciplinary centre for Storage, Transformation and Upgrading of Thermal Energy. It develops technologies that aim to reduce energy consumption and deliver cost-effective heating and cooling which will help the UK achieve its target of a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 80% by 2050. The research centre is funded through the UK Research Councils’ Energy Programme. The Centre involves technologists and researchers from the University of Warwick’s School of Engineering and Warwick Business School together with London South Bank University, the University of Ulster and Loughborough University.


H2FC Supergen is a research consortium focussing on the hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and addressing key issues about the role and benefits that these technologies bring to future low carbon energy systems.


HubNet is a hub funded by the RCUK Energy Programme to coordinate research in energy networks.


Energy Storage for Low Carbon Grids A consortium for leading UK energy storage research. The Energy Storage for Low Carbon Grids consortium brings together experts in electrical systems modelling, control, electrical energy storage, thermal energy storage, and economics, into one coherent programme.


EASAC (European Academies’ Science Advisory Council) regroups experts from the EU countries to provide scientific advice to guide European policy makers (strategy), developing interaction between EU members and sharing of information. One of the current Project launched by EASAC “Valuing Dedicated Storage on Electrical Power Systems” is dedicated to the role of energy storage to achieve a high penetration of renewable energy, which Peter Bruce and Goran Strbac are among the members of the working group.


JCESR is a major research partnership that integrates government, academic, and industrial researchers from many disciplines to overcome critical scientific and technical barriers and create new breakthrough energy storage technology. Located just outside of Chicago at Argonne National Laboratory, the partners include national leaders in science and engineering from academia, industry, and national laboratories. Their combined expertise spans the full range of the technology-development pipeline from basic research to prototype development to product engineering to market delivery. JCESR will make rapid progress and meaningful advances by strengthening these links.


The Electricity Storage Network is an industry group for companies and organisations that are active in the deployment, design, consumption and research of electricity storage for network connected applications. Electricity storage projects in all categories are of interest, including  compressed air, batteries, liquid air, pumped hydro and future technologies.

The Electricity Storage Network successfully connects research, market and government with regular meetings, discussions and conferences.


The GridInnovation-online platform, initially developed within the framework of the Grid+ project, serves as a sharing platform of the state-of-the-art knowledge of ongoing or new smart grid projects. The aim is to exchange knowledge on research and innovation projects to contribute to the EEGI Research and Development Roadmap (EEGI=European Electricity Grid Initiative). 


The International Battery and Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA) is the first international network of excellence in the field of battery and energy storage that enables an international and practice-oriented transfer of knowledge.

IBESA offers a worldwide network, contacts along the value chain of different business sectors, exclusive high-quality market research know-how as well as complete marketing and public relation packages.

The influential network of IBESA is based on many like-minded individual partners that share the same values and overall objectives. Our joint interest is to encourage the international storage market based on facts and figures. That's what we are working for.
