5 trends in energy storage systems

energy storage, battery, electricity, Europe, California, lithium, sodium, Tesla, aggregators, trends, net balancing, demand market

To promote the flexibility of batteries, new parties are needed. A new player is the aggregator, an entrepreneur that will converge power storage in batteries, charging stations, electric cars, Power to Heat and flexible usage and sells this as a package deal. This could be an energy company, but also car leasing companies.

This is the eve of the revolution of the battery. Although, the market in Europe is still small: a single network operator is experimenting, but the number of electric vehicles is growing fast.

But there is more. We noticed a lot of developments, particularly with the lithium-ion battery. These are the 5 trends in energy storage we want to share with you. Read More
