This second ERICA webinar will explore the economics of energy storage.
It is now obvious that variable renewable generation is the cheapest source of electricity production. But back-up in the form of dispatchable storage or dispatchable generation will be needed (amongst others) to ensure reliable 24/7 supply. How much and what type of storage is likely to be valuable? And how does the technical characteristics of different types of storage and their ability to provide ancillary and network services affect attractiveness to consumers and investors? In this webinar, three of Australia’s prominent researchers in this field will talk about the work they are doing to answer these questions.
Join Dr Steven Percy (Research Fellow, Victoria Policy Energy Centre - Victoria University), Dr Jenny Hayward (Research Scientist, Energy Technology group, CSIRO) and Dr Dylan McConnell (Energy systems research fellow, the University of Melbourne Climate and Energy College) to hear more about the economics of electricity storage.
Associate Professor Bruce Mountain, Director of the Victoria Policy Energy Centre - Victoria University, will host the event.
