As energy supply becomes more decentralised and renewable energy makes up a greater percentage of the energy mix, storage will be deployed in many more projects. These will range from stand alone systems providing grid support or backup to industrial sites, to integrated systems that combine a diverse range of generation technologies on a single site, whether grid connected or off grid. As such the Storage Engineering Manager will provide engineering and a degree of commercial support to energy storage projects across RES.
