Accelerating the energy transition is an urgent necessity if we are to avoid climate catastrophe but first we need to overcome the challenges that a dramatic increase in wind and solar energy brings.
Expertise in action:
We urgently need to prepare for a rapid increase in variable renewables, not only because of the climate challenge, but also because of the increased dependency of society on electricity. A combination of solutions is needed, including improved prediction of renewable power generation levels, demand response to react to excess renewables and shift electricity usage during peak periods.
Energy storage as an enabler:
Battery storage itself is not a new concept. But today’s developments are set to have a huge impact on the energy transition. With batteries taking a more critical role in electricity supply, it will become increasingly important to ensure that the performance of these batteries can be reliably verified using independent data.
