Smart energy and storage have been a key space of development in the Renewables sector. Below you can view the expert work Regen has carried out in this dynamic area, from EVs, digitalisation of the energy system, planning for a smart energy future, to storage.

Regen has particularly deepened its expertise on electricity storage by taking on the management of the Electrictriy Storage Network (ESN). The ESN was established in 2008 as the leading UK industry group dedicated to electricity storage. You can join this network as a member.
