While lithium-ion batteries continue to take the dominant share of new installations by some distance, there are a variety of other technologies looking to complement, combine or even compete with the Samsung SDIs, LG Chems, CATLs and BYDs of this world.

Some are closer to market than others, but even those that are widely accepted as too expensive today, like hydrogen, may have a strong role to play in the future of the decarbonised, decentralised and smarter energy system.

At the Energy Storage Digital Series hosted online by our publisher Solar Media in May, the opening session looked at the questions of which energy storage technologies are the likeliest contenders for that future. But also, the assembled panellists examine the market dynamics as they are today and how they will need to play out for the optimal deployment of energy storage technologies across the world – whether lithium or not.

Presenter: Lucy Jacobson-Durham, producer, Solar Media

Moderator: Clean Horizon head of market analysis Corentin Baschet


  • Dr Billy Wu, energy technologies and systems expert and senior lecturer at Imperial College, a London University
  • Matt Allen, CEO and co-founder of UK-based project developer Pivot Power
  • Jim Stover, chief marketing officer at VRB Energy, a vanadium flow battery manufacturer based in North America with a subsidiary company in China.
