This video examines electric energy storage technologies such as flow batteries, thermal storage, pumped hydro, and gravity-based storage.
“The Future Of Energy Storage Beyond Lithium Ion – Over the past decade, prices for solar panels and wind farms have reached all-time lows. However, the price for lithium ion batteries, the leading energy storage technology, has remained too high. So researchers are exploring other alternatives, including flow batteries, thermal batteries, and gravity-based systems.“ CNBC, 13 Feb 2020
CORRECTION (March 14, 2020): “At 12:53 we incorrectly identify the size of the energy storage market. Overall, the energy storage market is predicted to attract $620 billion dollars in investments by 2040.”
