| As the costs of variable renewable energy keep falling steadily, and lithium ion (Li-Ion) and other chemical batteries are still either too expensive or can’t hold the storage duration required, thermal storage can often give flexibility to complement solar photovoltaic & wind production.
This webinar is an intro to this technological standpoint which will analyse how this proposition works, its economies and scalability.
1) Understand the scope of this opportunity both in mature renewable energy markets and newcomers.
2) Hear from the companies that are making strides to provide utilities with long-term thermal storage for their wind and solar PV assets
3) Assess a proposal to refurbish decommissioning coal plants to thermal storage so it can store variable energy for use when there is demand.
