Webinar: The Rise of Electricity Storage

How electricity storage can transform European energy markets

The drive for decarbonisation coupled with competitiveness of renewable power generation has transformed the electricity markets in Europe in recent years. More recently, another substantial transformation is emerging in the form of proliferation of energy storage. The cost of energy storage systems, particularly batteries, is falling rapidly. According to The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) the installed cost of battery storage systems could fall by 50-66% resulting in at least seventeen-fold growth by 2030.

Driven by its growing economic attractiveness, as well as its widespread applications in future electricity systems, electricity storage is poised to play a crucial role in enabling the next phase of transition to a smart energy system. Electricity storage, from the batteries in solar home systems to those in electric vehicles, can provide the flexibility that electricity systems need to further accelerate the deployment of renewable energy. Inevitably, this will have knock-on effects on various market players across Europe.

Therefore, the key questions are: how will electricity storage shape the European electricity market in the years to come? And, who could emerge as the potential winners or losers?

For market players, the challenge lies not only in understanding the impact of such a transformation, but also in re-evaluating their strategies, operational as well as growth, to successfully embrace the change. For it is not the strongest, but rather the most adaptable, that thrive in times of change.
