Large-Scale Storage in Power: How big? How economic?

Thursday, March 12

11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Grid-scale storage, which generally requires very large batteries, is increasingly being deployed globally to support intermittent power assets or weak grids. Although the current market role of storage is small, will this change as renewables gain ground? What markets are ripe for investment? What technologies can deliver grid-scale storage? Are there alternatives to lithium-ion batteries? What business models are emerging for these assets? What is the future of grid-scale storage?
