WEDNESDAY, MAY 12 FROM 9:00AM PT. A reliable and affordable energy system is essential to the operation of nearly every function of the economy. One of the biggest challenges facing grid operators is to find cost effective ways to balance renewable energy production with demand. While batteries provide some flexibility, the ability to store large quantities of low-cost energy over long periods of time is essential to fill seasonal gaps and to address the prevalence of renewable energy droughts. Integrating renewable hydrogen into system design will address these holes.
Attend this 75-minute Renewable Gas 360 webinar to hear researchers from Caltech:
- Discuss the role of long duration storage in supporting grid reliability and affordability
- Present their industry-leading research on the prevalence of renewable energy droughts and their potential impact on renewable energy dependent grids
- Describe strategies to mitigate gaps in renewable power generation and weather related events
- Discuss policies and programs that grid operators and policy makers can implement to ensure a more reliable and resilient renewable power system
- Nathan S. Lewis; George L. Argyros Professor of Chemistry, California Institute of Technology
- Katherine Rinaldi; Ph.D. Candidate, California Institute of Technology
- Jacqueline A. Dowling; Ph.D. Candidate, California Institute of Technology
This webinar is part of a series of educational forums that illuminates the critical role renewable gases can play in helping states reduce GHGs, improve air quality, enhance energy reliability and resilience and achieve sustainable economic growth. Learn more.
