A previous event Energy storage – automotive and grids at the Royal Society explored how high performance energy storage systems will be essential in developing a sustainable future economy and their potential for next generation technologies to change the way we live. Over the last four years, however, we have seen that while the challenge to meet Net Zero has remained the same, the potential of novel technology and use of hydrogen, ammonia, and synthetic fuels to meet the energy storage challenge has increased with a parallel increase in investment.
This conference will explore key issues associated with implementing decarbonisation technologies for the national electricity supply and land transport to meet Net Zero in the UK. Topics discussed will include the development of electrification through batteries and other alternatives, and the coordination of an increasingly diverse and dispersed electricity system. A full agenda is available to view.
