Competitiveness - Exploring the Falling Costs of Energy Storage

Jun/08/2021 - 02:30 pm

ICM München, Room 13A

While there is growing demand for services that energy storage can provide, in many cases the existence of alternative, non-storage solutions creates a competitive situation typically decided by the cheapest viable option. Costs have fallen drastically in recent years, particularly where battery storage is concerned - but what can we expect for the future in terms of raw material prices, new technologies, and economies of scale from the growth of e-mobility? This session will examine the cost drivers of energy storage, key influencing trends and options for proactive cost-reduction strategies.


Sustainable Batteries - Impact on the Market

Jun/09/2021 - 11:00 am

ICM München, Room 13A

In Europe, industrial and consumer goods are subject to increasing scrutiny in respect of their sustainability - and batteries and battery-enabled products such as electric vehicles are no exception. Battery market players need to address environmental and societal concerns in order to comply with regulations, avoid jeopardizing the image of energy storage as a “clean technology”, and differentiate themselves from low cost, non-sustainable products from other regions. This session will outline how the trend towards sustainable batteries will affect the market in future in regulatory, economic and other respects.


Hybrid Power: Combining Energy Storage with Non-PV Renewables

Jun/09/2021 - 09:00 am

ICM München, Room 13A

Nowadays, most European renewables-plus-storage plants incorporate solar PV systems. However, in a growing number of projects, plants of this type are combining energy storage systems with other renewable energy sources, such as wind turbines, hydroelectric power stations and fossil-fuel-based power generation. Although not a particularly novel approach, co-locating energy assets in this manner is becoming increasingly widespread. In this session, speakers will examine the underlying rationale and assess the potential economic impact of combining energy storage with non-PV green power generation.
