Renewable energy is an increasing requirement as we aim to reach our climate goals to prevent irreversible environmental change. However, renewable energy is not a constant, placing pressure on energy storage markets to increase capacity. The International Renewable Energy Agency estimates that we need 150 GW of storage for 45% of all power generation to be renewable. These markets are directly linked and are the cornerstone to a successful energy transition.

The conversation delves into the scale of energy storage currently and what our future requirements are as the energy transition unfolds.
About the Pangea SI Expert: This Pangea SI Renewable Energy and Energy Storage Expert has over a decade of experience. They have worked in areas such as economics, finance, and fiscal policy across the European and US markets. They have a detailed understanding and direct experience working in the energy value chains and energy storage markets, and have applied their economic and financial knowledge to roles in these fields.
“Renewables have a lot of benefits and added value, such as their diversity of scale and also their flexibility. The environmental and carbon benefits from renewables are great. However, the main issue is intermittent generation which may or may not align with demand fluctuations. What energy markets need to make renewables work is a substantial growth in energy storage capacity.”
