Energy storage technologies need to scale-up significantly to integrate variable renewables in the grid and curb greenhouse gas emissions from power generation. To meet the climate targets, the energy storage market is continuing to evolve where we are starting to see cost-effective long duration storage solutions to enable the green energy transition towards renewables. As a part of the energy storage technology webinar series, in this session, we explore some ground-breaking thermal energy storage (TES) technologies that would be one of the cost-effective solutions to move away from fossil fuels and transform intermittent to controllable clean energy.
Since they have the capability to storage large amounts of energy at a relatively low cost, TES technologies enable operators to shift load from hours of low demand and high renewable output to hours of high demand and low renewable output. This maximizes the amount of renewable energy in the mix, keeps curtailment to a minimum and reduces the need for fossil back up.
Join this session to learn more about different kinds of long-duration TES technologies from experts:
- Jonas Eklind, CEO of Azelio
- Michael Geyer, MD for business development in Europe and MENA of Malta Inc.
In this online session you will…
- Understand how thermal storage technologies can play a key role in the energy transition whilst making energy systems more resilient
- Learn about the pros and cons of different types of thermal energy storage technologies, including aluminium alloy, liquid metal and molten salt
- Get access to practical examples of the application of these technologies in different markets
