The report will focus on three crucial factors that will guide the development and uptake of battery technology over the coming decade:
- Why? Battery Storage Is The Ultimate Disrupter. We will discuss how batteries can enable the integration of an increasing intermittent renewables power supply and support greater electrification efforts in the transport sector – with the technology having the potential to erode fossil fuels’ dominance as the global 'go-to' energy resource.
- What? The Outlook For Various Battery Technologies. The huge disruptive potential of batteries has led a plethora of technology developers to look to the market. This section will discuss why we expect lithium-ion batteries to outperform other forms of technology.
- How? Supportive Policy Crucial To Realising Potential. Supportive policy will be crucial component of realising the potential of battery storage. We will identify what type of policy that is likely to be employed in a variety of power and transport markets, and which countries we believe will be at the forefront of such efforts.
