Energy Now webinar with Wattstor – Going beyond simple solar: how to optimise renewable energy on your farm.

Case Studies

Energy Now will be hosting a free webinar for its members at 5:00 PM GMT on Wednesday 29th November, in which an expert from Wattstor, Jack Peck, will explore ways to optimise renewable energy usage on your farm via a well-chosen battery solution. 

Farmers were some of the first adopters of solar technology in the UK, understanding the significant potential return on investment a PV installation could bring. With the demise of the feed-in-tariff, change in government policy, and new technology entrants to the market, however, the way forward in 2023/4 seems less clear.

In this webinar Jack Peck, Business Development Manager at Wattstor will aim to dispel a few myths and set out a clear route forward for the next phase of renewable energy in agriculture: battery energy storage.

Jack Peck, Business Development Manager, Wattstor

Jack Peck has over a decade’s experience in the renewable energy sector. Starting out as a solar developer, he has spent the past five years bringing battery storage solutions to market and now manages Wattstor’s business development and partnerships in the UK.

  • Expanding your solar installation in the post FIT era
  • How to determine if your land/farm can benefit from battery storage
  • Identifying when storage is the perfect solution for your business
  • What is load shifting and why is it key to maximising returns from solar? 
  • DC battery solutions – when grid constraints become a limiting factor
