Without energy storage, electricity must be produced and consumed exactly at the same time. As the electric grid transforms due to decarbonization (renewables), digitalization (AI and machine learning), and decentralization (distributed generation), the existing structure is under increasing strain. The climate crisis is putting additional pressure on our electricity infrastructure and our communities. In this talk, learn why energy storage is the linchpin to the clean energy transition and how it is already making the grid more sustainable, cost-effective, and reliable.
