Green Energy Will Need More Storage Space

  • Lithium-ion battery storage has worked on smaller scales, but large-scale utility storage technology has yet to be fully developed.

“Governments around the world greatly raised their decarbonization ambitions this year. There is great uncertainty about how their promises will be delivered, but almost all scenarios involve massive building of solar and wind farms. As their share of power production grows, it will become crucial to bridge the times when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine.”
