Long-Duration Energy Storage: Delivering Near-Term Carbon Reductions

Time: 10:55 - 11:15

Today, regions that have led the deployment of renewable generation capacity are beginning to experience a side effect of their success: curtailment of clean energy generation when potential generation outstrips energy demand. Curtailment of these assets represents a lost opportunity in terms of clean energy generation, carbon reductions and revenue for solar project operators. Currently, the gap between available renewable generation and grid demand is filled by fossil-fired generation in evening hours which results in carbon emissions and elevated energy costs for energy consumers. Adding long-duration energy storage (LDES) to the grid enables this excess generation to be captured when solar resources are plentiful and redeployed to the grid when energy is needed to reduce carbon emissions and enable a fully-renewable energy system.
