Details of the Energy Storage virtual session on the 20th:

Market potential and challenges of energy storage solutions: Energy storage will play a key role in stabilizing a more volatile energy system based on renewable energies in the future. However, implementation of storage solutions - especially with new advanced technologies - is accompanied by challenges and holistic quality assurance measures still have to be materialized. Join the session to learn more about the market potential of storage solutions, which technology type most likely will prevail, and how technical and economic risks can be mitigated.
