Following the 24th World Energy Congress in September 2019, the World Energy Council has published their Innovation Insights Brief on Energy Storage. Having conducted interviews with leaders in Energy Storage from around the world, specifically to ascertain the current state of play for this key 'game-changer' for energy systems, this briefing explores the positive progress to date and potential future limitations being hard coded in now, as a result of the dominance of lithium-ion batteries.
