Faraday Grid offers transformer replacement and says it can solve power quality issues

Batteries are the wrong technology to manage network frequency, says Andrew Scobie, executive chairman at Faraday Grid. Although batteries have their place, he says trying to use them to solve frequency problem is “like using limousines for furniture removals”.
