As homeowners continue to seek out cleaner energy, domestic energy storage systems have become an increasingly attractive proposition. Not only do they offer a sustainable alternative, but we’re beginning to see signs of financial benefits as well. These systems can now harness intelligent software that coordinates energy production and helps users decide when to store excess energy or release it to the grid. However, with the increasing adoption of these systems, it is crucial to prioritise safety to ensure the well-being of homeowners. There are various safety considerations, common concerns and technologies associated with domestic battery energy storage systems that are worth considering.
Winter can be a challenging time for a variety of reasons, affecting millions of people and businesses. The impact on UK industries will vary drastically as some will see financial gain and others will require cost-cutting measures. Businesses within the manufacturing, construction and transport sectors begin to experience pressure points over the winter months as higher energy costs and logistical complications arise with solutions not easily available. As well as businesses, challenges exist for UK homeowners and families as we strive to find the most efficient solutions for energy storage in winter.
The cold temperatures can have detrimental effects on our daily lives, from a mental health and wellbeing perspective, to a financial perspective. Financially, winter is an expensive time of year predominantly due to rising energy costs following the need for heating. As well as heating costs, freezing temperatures can lead to household damage and apply pressure on the efficiency of home energy storage.
