Simon Reid was convincing about Batteries:

"the next key element in transforming our Mains Grid into a more sustainable Lighter and Smarter Version. The benefits both Collectively and Individually are clear ... the problem is getting things moving - whereas in the early days of Grid-Connect Solar Panels, there were Government Incentives for Early Movers, for Batteries (currently) there are not ... Sustainable sourcing of battery materials is an issue that we need to watch and hope is done is well. "
