Report of WWF Poland concerning technologies of energy storage

2020 / 08 / 10

World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF Poland) has published a comprehensive report on energy storage technologies was published, with particular emphasis on the expected effects of reducing emissions and pollution from the energy sector. The study is a compendium of the latest knowledge in the field of energy storage of various scales, including systems dedicated to energy, transport and industry. The co-author of both language versions of the report is  Jakub Kupecki, prof. IEn, head of the Department of High Temperature Electrochemical Processes.

The report takes a look at current and recently developed technologies that can help Poland and the rest of the world in building a carbon-neutral energy mix. Efficient, safe for humans as well as climate- and biodiversity-friendly. The report presents over a dozen energy storage technologies in detail, focusing on how it works, the actual and potential usage, scale of development and costs (including cost curves).

An abridged version of the report, containing only essential information and knowledge, has also been created. The short version is not only an up-to-date summary of technological development but also an important element in the discussion on  the tools needed to decarbonize the economy. The report clearly displays main roles to be played by energy storage and its most important technologies in the process as well as indicates most promising technologies in each area.
