Issue 20, Spring 2018

 

Editorial

We hope you enjoy our latest issue of Energy Storage Journal.

This issue our cover story has focused on the challenge that lithium ion batteries will face in the coming years as new and exciting — and cheaper per kWh! — chemistries come to the fore. Some technologies are probably at least a decade or more away. But some could happen, and happen in scale, by the early 2020s.

We also examine the vexatious issue of project pricing. There is much misleading talk, sometimes deliberately so, about the true rates of return on energy storage projects. The trouble is, as we show, transparency over pricing is never going to be easy to find. And especially so in a market that has yet to find maturity.

We’ve also enclosed a special supplement from ees/Intersolar reviewing some of the major trends in European energy storage, how eMobility will be apart of this new landscape, as well as looking ahead to their conference series around the world.

And as ever we hope you enjoy all our regular slots, a round-up of the most important deals and news, our CEO interview and comprehensive events listing.

Yours truly,

Jade Beevor
Advertising Manager
