Energy Storage and Solar: What Does, and Doesn’t, Lie on the Horizon

Wednesday, October 8, 2014 12:00pm – 1:00pm EDT  
Host: Principal Solar Institute
By: Matt Roberts, Executive Director, Energy Storage Association

Solar energy continues to blaze a path forward for renewables, and installations are rapidly expanding around the globe – at both the grid and distributed scales. This represents a major shift in the way we generate and consume electricity every day, and the increased penetration of renewables is creating new challenges. Both photovoltaic and solar thermal benefit immensely from the addition of energy storage technologies – allowing renewables to be dispatchable, on-demand resources. Energy storage technology is rapidly advancing as the solution to challenges created by intermittency and distributed generation. This webinar will focus on the role of energy storage on the grid, and how storage is able to augment the solar industry.
