Today, storage is used primarily as a backup system rather than as a tool to facilitate load shifting. Reversing this trend is often seen as the key for unlocking the full potential of intermittent renewables. While progress is being made, the energy storage industry faces headwinds in the form of affordability, policy support, and the ease of commercialization for new technologies. This webinar will examine the role of innovation in advancing energy storage with panelists examining the state of new technologies, new policy approaches to support deployment and commercialization, and the role of financing in transforming the market.
