Alan Collinson

Future Networks Engineer, Scottish Power Network

Alan is the one person within Scottish Power to have analysed the benefits and constraints that energy storage could provide a solutions for.  His division is focused on planning for the future of the networks. His main concern at this stage is how developers may not be using the appropriate size of a battery to reduce the cost given the benefits of the economy of scale. This implies that DNOs have to enlarge and create new networks to accommodate these batteries by digging up road and infrastructure in a very expensive fashion.
