  • IEA Energy Storage Roadmap - Technical Annex

    Posted: March 19, 2014 - 18:43 / IEA / Reports

    Energy storage technologies absorb energy and store it for a period of time before releasing it to supply energy or power services. In the Technology Roadmap: Energy Storage, technologies are categorised by output: electricity and thermal (heat or cold). This Technology Annex aims to increase understanding among a range of stakeholders of the electricity and thermal energy storage technologies, in support of the Technology Roadmap: Energy Storage.

  • IEA Technology Roadmap - Energy Storage

    Posted: March 19, 2014 - 15:58 / IEA / Reports

    Energy storage technologies absorb energy and store it for a period of time before releasing it to supply energy or power services. Through this process, storage technologies can bridge temporal and (when coupled with other energy infrastructure components) geographical gaps between energy supply and demand. Energy storage technologies can be implemented on large and small scales in distributed and centralised manners throughout the energy system. While some technologies are mature or near maturity, most are still in the early stages of development and will require additional attention before their potential can be fully realised.
