Enabling longer duration storage and non lithium-ion technology, what to do with the storage capabilities of electric vehicles and how the industry is overcoming regulatory hurdles were all key topics discussed at this year's Energy Storage Summit in London.
The UK energy storage is currently “in limbo” despite improvements to regulation made in recent years, according to panellists at the Energy Storage Summit.
Battery storage in continental Europe “is not working anymore” following the integration of the European market, according to Next Kraftwerke CEO Jochen Schwill.
A legislative package for energy storage research and development has been welcomed by the US Energy Storage Association after receiving approval from the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
Two bills that have been introduced in the US to support and accelerate the development and deployment of energy storage are enjoying cross-party support and look likely to pass unopposed, an analyst has said.
