Long duration energy storage is “essential” to help accelerate renewable deployment, according to the US Department of Energy’s Dr Imre Gyuk, who moderates this panel discussion with Matt Harper from flow battery provider Invinity Energy Systems and Russ Weed from gravity energy storage company ARES.
Dr Gyuk is director of Energy Storage Research in the Office of Electricity at the DoE. He explains in his opening remarks that while essential from a technological standpoint, the regulatory frameworks to create market opportunities for long duration energy storage do not really exist.
