The New Normal for Energy: Challenges and Opportunities
Energy for transportation and the electricity grid is undergoing dramatic change driven by the advent of electric vehicles, trucks and flight, by inexpensive wind and solar generation, energy storage spanning generation, transmission and distribution, demand response in the distribution grid, and public concern about climate change, toxic fossil emissions, extreme weather and wildfire risk. The diversity of the emerging applications for energy storage requires a diversity of next generation batteries purpose-designed for specific uses. Several novel use cases for energy storage and the Incremental and disruptive battery technologies that might serve them will be summarized.
