• Get to know the different techniques of energy storage
  • Learn why energy storage is crucial in the energy transition

 

The availability of energy storage is essential for the large-scale application of renewable energy sources such as solar energy and wind energy. Storage is necessary to bridge the differences between energy demand and supply patterns. Surpluses in supply must be stored, shortages must be replenished. This could play on very different time scales: from less than a second to a season. Geothermal storage, hydrogen storage or batteries seem the most viable options. But how far are the techniques? And what is needed for further development? Join us and find out!
