The Shift Towards Long-Duration Storage: The Advantages Of Zinc-Based Batteries
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
Great America J
09:40 - 10:00
As utilities look for cost-effective and clean alternatives to traditional transmission and distribution investment, stationary storage has become the ideal solution to co-locate generation and load as a means of locational capacity. Chip Russell, Director of Business Development at Eos Energy Storage will examine how grid operators are shifting away from frequency regulation applications to multi-hour storage applications to accommodate the locational capacity use case. He will also discuss the advantages of the zinc hybrid cathode battery chemistry Eos employs, and why it is a viable alternative to incumbent lithium-ion batteries for long-term, grid-scale operation.
