A presentation by the Energy Thematic Group
With increasing levels of renewable energy on the grid, energy storage is fast becoming a necessary new asset class. Most applications of energy storage are variations of that theme – integrating intermittent renewables. There is still no single battery for all applications as yet. The market is broadly divided into two segments: (i) short-duration storage of up to 4hours, where Lithium-ion batteries dominate: and (ii) long-duration storage, where full-blown technology competition between wildly different designs is still undecided. The presentation will discuss the technology and economics of stationary energy storage, the most promising technologies for future long-duration storage, and IFC’s infrastructure business in the sector.
