Facts about energy storage: did you know that…
Various calculations show that the introduction of a high share of renewable, intermittent sources of energy, higher levels of electrification in the various sectors as well as millions of EVs on the road, show that it cannot be achieved without genuine, very-large-scale energy storage. Typically, up to tens of TeraWatt.hours (TWh) may be needed at the scale of only one medium-size country like France, if it would like to reach a close-to-100 % level of electricity produced from renewable sources of energy.
By following the current track and using electrochemical batteries or hydrogen, we will likely be quite far from covering the genuine needs of a decarbonated world in terms of energy, as urged for by the latest reports on climate change.
So we are in an urgent need to have better, higher-density, safer, cheaper and more sustainable solutions for energy storage.
