The future success of renewable energy and electric vehicles for both consumer markets and utility-scale markets is going to depend largely on the ability to store that energy.
However, current battery storage technologies are expensive, only suitable for short-term back-up, frequency regulation of the grid, and micro-grid applications. There is also the challenge around stability (some are prone to explode), the longevity of the units, and environmental disposal of the used products.
This webinar unpacks:
- Mining – what minerals are required for energy storage, wherein Africa can they be found and what volumes are required to support this growing market
- Factors influencing the supply and demand for battery storage commodities
- The latest innovations in battery storage technologies
- Unpacking solutions to address the challenges in developing a sustainable battery storage ‘cradle-to-grave’ market
