2018 energy storage Europe special

In cooperation with the 2018 Energy Storage Europe exhibition, held in Düsseldorf, Germany from March 12 to 14, pv magazine prepared an Energy Storage special publication.

We asked leading industry players, researchers – and ourselves – just what are the key questions that often go unanswered when it comes to storage?

The 30-page special issue tackles these questions, and sheds light on the shaded parts of the storage sector. Issues addressed include:

  • Top 10 Innovations in Energy Storage: A jury of respected independent experts have reviewed and ranked the leading battery products, storage services and sector innovations for 2018. Who has taken top spot?
  • Flexible sector coupling: An examination of how storage technology can prove its worth in delivering a more flexible electricity future.
  • Lithium-ion vs. redox flow: While the former may be the more dominant technology currently, why is redox flow technology beginning to corner more market share?
  • Production in Europe: Battery cell production at scale is dominated by Asia, but European ambitions are far from dead – and moves are afoot to scale up production across the continent.
  • Large-scale storage and solar: Exploring the synergies – tapped and untapped – of collocating large-scale storage with solar power.
  • Expert debate: A panel of respected storage experts gather to share their thoughts on a range of questions and topics concerning the energy storage industry.
