2.2 What's the point of batteries?

What are the benefits of using batteries, and how do they compare to alternatives? How are batteries used as part of the energy system in the UK, and how is that likely to change in the future?

Alan Whitehead MP, Shadow Energy Minister, and Dr Jacqueline Edge from Imperial College London, join us to talk about batteries and the big picture. We learn how batteries can best be used to facilitate a more sustainable future, and how this might affect us on an individual level.
