Future energy storage
Climate change is affecting citizens in every country, on every continent, all around the world. Reforming our energy system is one of the most important measures to mitigate climate change. An important aspect of this is energy storage. Only three per cent of our power capacity is being stored globally. To limit global warming below 2°C, energy storage capacity needs to triple by 2050.
There are a number of promising energy storage technologies that can be adopted for future urban energy systems. These include geothermal storage, portable hydrogen storage and new types of batteries. There is no “one-size fits-all solution” however, which is why a combination of day-to day and seasonal storage is needed.
In our Urban Insight report “Beyond the tipping point: Future Energy Storage”, Sweco experts imagine a future urban energy system that addresses how to smoothly introduce renewable sources in the electricity grid, and examines the increased demand for energy on the go.
