The UK Energy Storage Observatory (UKESTO) freely showcases national energy storage innovation, describing energy storage facilities in the UK and providing data from test beds. A key deliverable of the MANIFEST project, the UKESTO website maps energy storage facilities within the MANIFEST consortium and lists the experimental data for tests on different energy storage systems (ESS) across the MANIFEST consortium.
Through Manifest’s network of national energy storage facilities and UKESTO’s ability to provide access to facility outputs (testing, operational runs, experiments etc.) the UK can be established as an energy storage innovation hub.
