Renewables and battery storage are increasingly popular options to pair alongside chargers to reduce grid demands and save money by avoiding charging a peak time, and even to increase the sustainability profile of a charger by using renewable energy sources.

In this session we will outline all the options and the long-term implications of deploying battery storage alongside your charge points.
