Energy Storage

Energy Storage is a megatrend that is essential to support the renewables energy sector. Battery storage is today a commercially viable short-term energy storage, and other mediums such as hydrogen storage today are developing rapidly to provide long-term power storage capabilities for transient renewable energy supply.

The Emerald team are experts in the Energy Transition and advise critical clients on the new critical technologies, equipment, and infrastructure to enable smart investment or significant growth opportunities.

The rise of renewable power has already transformed the electricity system. As wind farms and solar arrays continue to displace fossil fuel-based power generation, increasing amounts of energy storage are required to ensure the grid's reliability. Lithium-ion batteries have established themselves as the standard in short-duration energy storage applications. Will hydrogen become the Technology of choice for seasonal-scale storage?
