Energy Storage: A Vital Element in a Lower Carbon World in Boston on August 10
Event Description

Whether the reason is Energy Independence, National Security or Climate Change, reducing the use of Carbon will be critical to society’s future. One critically important aspect about fossil fuels is that they are not just forms of energy, they are forms of “stored” energy. If we are going to reduce our dependence on them by using renewable energy like Wind or Solar, which are forms of pure energy, we will also have to replace the storage aspect of them. Energy Storage on both the Grid side and Building side of the meter will be covered along with their respective applications.

The talk will cover how Energy Storage, in general, is a critical element of the future Grid and Net Zero building and the different type of storage and applications focusing on Thermal Storage since it is the low hanging fruit considering cost, life, and energy. All types of storage are needed and understanding their different strengths is important.
