Environment Analyst invites you to their event

What Role do Energy Storage and Hydrogen Play in the Energy Transition?

About this event

This Sustainability Delivery Group Expert Talk will look at the critical role of energy storage in the energy transition, and will introduce Jacobs’ modelling of the optimum combination of short, medium and long duration storage solutions to meet net zero by 2050 and eliminate fossil fuelled generation by 2035, at least cost. We will further define long-term duration and take a more detailed look at hydrogen and its role in energy storage to effectively balance intermittent renewables ‘when the wind doesn’t blow’ or the ‘sun doesn’t shine’.
