VIDEO: Fluence’s Marek Kubik on solar firming and decarbonisation with energy storage

· Grid Scale,Energy Storage,Technology

I was recently interviewed by Solar Media here on a whole host of energy storage related topics including :

  • The arrival of revenue stacking as a commonly-talked about aspect of storage project development.   
  • Why solar firming with energy storage is part of the market’s natural “direction of travel” and when we can expect dispatchable solar to become a mainstream proposition.
  • How energy storage can squeeze some thermal generation, particularly combined cycle gas turbines (CCGT), from being needed to balance the grid with response times of “hundreds of milliseconds”.
  • The ways in which this provision of ‘digital inertia’ can aid decarbonisation.
