ITP Renewables

The Lithium Ion Battery Trial was conceived and is managed by ITP Renewables (ITP). We are a global leader in renewable energy consulting and project management, with expertise spanning the breadth of renewable energy and energy storage technologies.

For 35 years ITP has been specifying battery energy storage to optimise the design of remote solar photovoltaic / diesel hybrid mini‑grids all around the world. Recently, with rapidly falling battery prices, we have extended this expertise to on-grid applications, now typically using lithium-ion battery technologies. Learn more about ITP here .
