As our world transitions toward cleaner energy sources, the need for effective energy storage becomes increasingly critical. While batteries have been the go-to solution, there are other innovative methods worth exploring.

Energy storage isn’t just about storing excess electricity; it’s a linchpin for our sustainable future. Whether it’s harnessing solar energy during the day or ensuring a stable grid during peak demand, energy storage solutions play a vital role.

Lets recap on this week’s activities for Energy Storage Week:

Insights from the Community

Challenges, compromise and creativity in energy storage described some of the innovative ideas engineers are currently exploring and we read about the work of Professor Yulong Ding in Leading the charge into the future…the man finding new ways to store energy.  Artificial Intelligence and the art of discovery covered how AI has been used to discover a new material that could significantly reduce lithium usage in batteries and in our Ask the Expert session, Griff Thomas answered your questions on all things Energy Storage.
