Enabling Energy Storage to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
A recording of this webinar is available for public viewing (below)
Energy storage technologies enable an enormous amount of efficiencies and capabilities for the electric grid — including the ability to reduce GHG emissions alongside more clean energy resources. Yet, recent studies raise concerns about the potential of increasing GHG emissions from storage. What’s the real story?
On August 22, ESA held this webinar that examined the overall impact of storage on GHG emissions in the electric system. After reviewing recent studies on storage and GHGs, presenters discussed whether concerns about storage increasing GHG emissions are warranted and explored market and regulatory reforms to optimize storage’s role in GHG mitigation strategies.
