It will be interesting to see what transpires in this budget announcement in a couple of days. Of course it is great to see innovation incentivised and funded, something the UK has been historically good at. Sadly it has always also been historically bad and commercialising innovation or deploying existing and proven clean technologies. More than this funding, a few simple cost free tweaks to legislation for energy storage, the removal of double charging for example, would have a far quicker and more significant impact.
