18 Jun How bromine technologies contribute to efficient energy storage
With the world population rapidly increasing, more people around the world will require energy to support their lifestyles. To meet this growing energy demand, we need solutions that can support us now and in the future.
Renewable energy is already available and widely in use. Green technologies such as wind farms and solar panels enable consumers to use energy while lowering their environmental footprint. Yet, these renewable energy sources have unreliable capacities, leading to limited access. For example, it can be quite challenging to store electricity at a large scale which makes it a less accessible resource. Therefore, the development of renewable energy will require efficient energy storage to enable the energy transition.
Bromine-based storage technologies contribute to highly efficient energy storage and can manage energy from renewable sources. Thanks to these technologies, the use of renewable energy can be optimised which reduces the waste of this clean energy. Bromine-based electricity storage technologies are efficient tools to manage renewable energy, minimise energy loss and ensure security of supply. In other words, these storage technologies are drivers of the energy transition since they help to improve the access to sustainable sources of energy.
To learn more about the potential of energy storage, save the date for the 2021 Energy Storage Global Conference. Organised by the European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE), this event offers the opportunity to industry, researchers and policymakers to discuss the key issues of the storage sector.
