Energy storage is increasingly a prominent determinant of the new energy system, balancing centralized and distributed power generation as well as supporting increasing needs for flexibility, security and frequency regulation in the systems. In Brazil, it’s believed that 12GW of battery capacity will be needed for peak demand alone to meet wind and solar supply — expected to grow from 10GW to 38GW by 2026 — with grid tied storage systems enabling the adoption of distributed renewable energy sources along the power system.
What are the prospects and challenges and what can we expect for the next five years?
During the webinar participants can submit their questions to get them answered by the experts in the live Q&A. In addition, both the recording and the speakers' presentations are made available to all registrants after the webinar.
