Its members include providers of technologies like flow batteries, thermal energy storage, advanced compressed air, and many more, alongside service providers and potential end-users like Microsoft and Google.

The interview you’re about to see was recorded at the 2024 Energy Storage Summit EU in London.

We cover a lot of interesting areas: from Murtagh’s personal journey from helping shape energy policy in California to joining the LDES Council, to the different definitions of Long-duration energy storage, how newer technologies can compete with or complement lithium-ion batteries in the global market and the Council’s work in modelling future energy systems and educating stakeholders in the energy sector on the role a diverse portfolio of storage technologies can play in the transition to renewable energy.

Stay tuned for another video interview, this time with Yann Brandt, Flexgen chief operating officer and chair of the energy storage division at the US Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), coming soon.

Later in the year, we anticipate launching an online interview series with energy storage industry experts, insiders and thought leaders exclusively for Premium subscribers, so again, stay tuned for that.
