While lithium-ion battery deployments have ramped up significantly in recent years as costs have decreased, project developers are reluctant to place long-duration, i.e. four hours or more demands on that technology. Lithium-ion batteries have shorter cycle lives than alternative long-duration solutions, making them uneconomical over the long-term when exercised deeply and frequently. This session will therefore look into non-electrochemical batteries designed for long duration energy storage like e.g. pumped hydropower, liquid air energy storage, or compressed air among others.
