Energy storage adoption is already rapidly accelerating in the USA, up 182% QoQ in Q4 2020. Looking out further, BloombergNEF (BNEF) forecasts a 122x increase in global energy storage from 2018 to 2040. BNEF forecasts that utility scale energy storage will be the dominant sector, meaning the utility companies that supply grid scale electricity, rather than behind-the-meter residential energy storage. If correct, this means utility energy storage is the area of greatest growth potential...
Independent experts say the spending that will be needed to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 — a goal now embraced by the U.S. and many other countries — would be on the scale of the Industrial Revolution...
Electricity markets are beginning to experience a rapid transformation as development and deployment of energy storage continue to grow at an accelerated rate. While industry stakeholders have been aware of potential benefits for some time, energy storage now appears to be at an inflection point. The current rise of energy storage financing and development opportunities mirrors the heightened interest in solar technologies that we observed nearly a decade ago...
President Biden ..outlines an ambitious, multitrillion-dollar infrastructure and jobs plan that proposes unprecedented investments in clean energy and combating climate change to be paid for in part by ending fossil fuel tax breaks...
AI can provide breakthroughs in water and energy conservation – but it comes with its own carbon footprint. It can improve numerous impacts of society – but it can also reinforce existing biased or unjust social status quos. AI holds the promise of reducing our collective global carbon footprint and conserving our natural resources. But to do so, we must learn to use it responsibly...
