Webinar: The latest innovation in bulk storage technologies
Session 1: Asia-Pac & MENA at 10am GST / 15pm JST / 17pm AEDT / 7am CET
Session 2: Europe & Americas at 9am PST/ 12pm EST / 5pm GMT / 6pm CET
One of the largest challenges grid operators and utilities face is to continue to provide reliability and firmness in a context of larger amounts intermittent renewable energy 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 the capital and operational costs, life-cycle and discharge times. This webinar compares different technologies available for long term bulk storage for grids and it analyses the novel approach of Gravity Storage to resolve this challenge.
- Understand why investing in long-term bulk energy storage is key to guaranteeing the firmness and reliability of the grid and security of supply as more intermittent technology
- Compare the technology and Levelized Costs of Storage (LCOS) for pumped hydro, compressed air, lithium-ion and sodium-sulphur battery storage and gravity storage
- Analyse ´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
This webinar addresses decision makers in utilities, grid operators, contracting companies for infrastructure.
