- Wind and solar power are not the only renewable resources. There are a lot of other technologies that are also being explored and developed. Three of the more prominent—hydro, geothermal, and biomass—have their own challenges, but they remain vital pieces of the renewable puzzle. Tidal and wave energy are beginning to gain traction and important developments in offshore wind technology could allow more installations in previously untapped, deep ocean waters. Yet, advancements in energy storage technology could be the game-changer. In addition to lithium-ion batteries, block storage, thermal mass, pumped storage, CAES, and ETES are all being widely researched. This session is designed to touch on all of the latest developments in renewable technology.
- Energy Storage (block storage; thermal mass; battery storage; pumped storage; CAES; ETES)
- Tidal/wave technology
- Offshore growth potential
