The world is moving quickly to adopt renewable energy, which is a positive trend, but also one that demands a significant shift in how power is transmitted, distributed and stored. As it stands today, power is a ‘use it or lose it’ proposition - our ability to store power is fairly limited. In fact, less than 5% of the electricity generated by utilities globally is stored. This reality is complicated by the fact that the availability of many renewable sources is limited by factors like location and time of day, making storage even more critical in future. How can energy storage technology help support our shift toward renewables?
Join this week’s experts, Audrey Wang Gosselin, Grid Modernization Applications Engineer and Connor Aimone, Power Consulting Engineer, as they explain energy storage systems, shine light on some of the concerns around it, and help us understand the immense benefits these technologies can offer society.
