Webinar: How thermal energy storage makes variable renewables dispatchable

May 25, 2023 – May 25, 2023
01:00 pm – 03:00 pm

Energy storage is the key to secure resilience, reliability and dispatchability in the grid even when the energy mix is based on variable renewables. However, while there is a lot of awareness about batteries, thermal storage is still a largely unknown treasure to be distpachable – coming at third or less of the cost.  In this webinar 5 thermal energy storage talk about the experience with thermal storage in Spain, China and Morocco and the new R&D technology that will revolutionize storing energy with longer durations, better round trip efficiencies and more competitive costs.
