Can batteries solve South Australia's energy problems?
This month’s talk is from Bruce Mountain, Director of Carbon and Energy Markets and co-founder of retail market data and market intelligence provider, MarkIntell.
Battery storage technology is evolving rapidly. Widespread uptake is expected in both distributed and grid-scale applications. These developments present new options for producers and consumers and raise fascinating economic and policy issues. In this talk we examine the economics of storage and discuss those economic and policy issues.
