Energy storage is the linchpin that holds the promise of a reliable, renewable energy future. It enables us to harness energy from intermittent sources like solar and wind, ensuring a steady and dependable power supply even when the sun isn't shining or the wind isn't blowing. From grid-scale batteries and pumped hydro storage to cutting-edge technologies like flow batteries and thermal storage, the innovations in this field are transforming the way we generate, store, and consume energy.

As the world shifts towards renewable energy sources like solar and wind, which are inherently intermittent, the ability to store energy efficiently and economically becomes crucial. From improving grid reliability to enabling electric vehicles and powering remote areas, energy storage technologies are integral to a cleaner, greener future.

Throughout this week on EngX we’ll delve into the increasingly popular topic of energy storage.

In Community Insights, we'll hear from those working at the forefront of the industry, and post your questions on energy storage for our next Ask the Expert  session on Wednesday 22 May. Post your questions before Wednesday!  

There's also still time to register for the Launch of the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems, 3rd Edition on Tuesday 21 May. You can attend the event either physically at the IET's Futures Place office in Stevenage or virtually online. (registration is required for either option)
