The Future of Long Duration Energy Storage and Their Applications


| Online

This virtual roundtable, moderated by ACP’s VP of Energy Storage Jason Burwen, will feature opening remarks by ACP CEO Heather Zichal and a discussion of technologies and their applications to decarbonize power systems. This webinar will be co-hosted by ACP and members of the Long Duration Energy Storage (LDES) Council, with McKinsey & Company, as knowledge partner of the Council, providing insights.

Launched at COP26, the LDES Council is a CEO-led organization that strives to provide fact-based guidance to governments and industry, drawing from the experience of its members, which include leading energy companies, technology providers, investors, and end-users.

Council members will share insights from their inaugural report, where the implications of LDES technologies for energy flexibility and the clean energy transition as well as the background behind the formation of the LDES Council will be discussed. Key findings of the report will be shared, including US-specific insights, followed by a live plenary panel discussion with representatives from Council members. The panel will also take questions from the audience.

The report is the result of months of research and collaboration of Council members. From extensive modelling and exploration, projections show that 1.5-2.5 TW and 85-140 TWh could be deployed globally by 2040, with USD 1.5-3 tn investment, storing up to 10% of all electricity consumed.
