As far as critical technologies that can have a cascading impact across the utility industry, few are being worked on as feverishly and with as much anticipation as Energy Storage.
Energy storage technology, whether traditional in the form of batteries or pumped hydropower, hydrogen fuel, or even operational energy storage strategies using growing EV fleets, has many in the power sector excited and eager to see what the future may hold. It is believed that widespread and effective power storage will help renewables with their intermittency problems and can create new opportunities to store power at low prices while being able to sell it at high prices. Plus, the reliability and resilience ramifications cannot be understated.
For these reasons and more, energy storage has been at the forefront of R&D projects. But it's sometimes difficult to get a good hold on the state of the industry and how imminently energy storage will transform the way the grid operates. For every exciting headline of technological breakthroughs, there's another that indicates how far off we may still be from grid-scale batteries making the impact they've long promised.
With that in mind, Energy Central is looking for your insights and predictions for the near- and far-term future of Energy Storage. Help the Energy Central Community read the temperature of the energy storage markets and see where the progress is happening by submitting to our upcoming "Charging Ahead on the Future of Energy Storage" Special Issue Scheduled to Deploy on July 30th. Below are a few question prompts to consider for your submission:
- What new and innovative ways has your utility integrated energy storage into your assets and operations?
- What challenges are you facing before energy storage can be a more significant part of your infrastructure?
- As you look at the 5-10 year roadmaps for your organization, where does energy storage come into play?
- How have you taken advantage of customers who may have energy storage available to them (e.g., residential home batteries, charged EV fleets)?
- What other insights, questions, reports, ideas, or concerns about energy storage do you want to share with the Energy Central community?
