The transition to low carbon energy systems, especially with increasing deployment of renewables, will introduce new challenges for balancing supply and demand. From increasing access to electricity in off-grid communities, and developing local smart grids, to more efficient transmission networks, new technologies can be a key enabler. The panel will provide insights on the challenges and how to overcome them, considering technology, policy, and socio-economic factors. Discussion will address specific opportunities from, and barriers to, deployment of energy storage technologies globally.
