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. The examples presented in this annex were chosen from a wide range of submissions from governments, industry, experts, and the IEA energy technology network including members of the Implementing Agreement for a Programme of Research and Development on Energy Conservation through Energy Storage (ECES IA). The IEA would like to thank these groups for their contributions.
