Webinar: The latest innovation in bulk storage technologies (1st Feb 2018)
One of the largest challenges grid operators and utilities face is to continue providing reliability and firmness when ever larger amounts of intermittent renewable power are being added to the grid network.
Bulk storage technologies – with the ability to discharge quickly for 8+ hours – have lined up to be part of the solution for grids. However, they vary significantly in terms of capital and operational costs, life-cycle and discharge times. This webinar compares different technologies available for long term, bulk energy storage for grids and analyzes the novel approach of Gravity Storage to resolve this challenge.
- Understand why investing in long-term bulk energy storage is key to guaranteeing firmness and grid reliability as more intermittent renewables are connected to the grid
- Compare the technology and Levelized Costs of Storage (LCOS) for pumped hydro, compressed air, lithium-ion and sodium-sulfur battery storage, and gravity storage
- Analyze ´Gravity Storage’, an innovation similar to pumped hydro with 8h+ bulk storage, using a gravitational based process which is suitable for areas of low or no elevation.
