'Big storage' is the next big technology in the climate fight
Bloomberg Green · March 30, 2021
Innovative, low-cost long duration energy storage technologies could make a large impact in a more affordable and reliable energy transition. A new paper in Nature Energy by researchers at MITEI and Princeton University’s Andlinger Center for Energy and Environment evaluates the role and value that these technologies could have in securing a carbon-free electric grid and find that they have the potential to lower electricity prices in a carbon-free system by up to 40%.
