Energy storage systems – current status and outlook. Summary

Oertel, Dagmar


Energy supply is facing a number of new challenges. The increasing liberalisation and globalisation of the energy markets not only sets new framework conditions, but also places new demands on the energy supply systems of the future. Central to this is the maintenance of security of supply with electrical energy in the face of increasing shares of fluctuating energy sources as well as changed procurement conditions for fossil raw materials. The prevention of further climate change and environmental pollution caused by energy supply also play an important role. Today, energy storage systems are an integral part of our energy supply system. Nevertheless, their role - outside the technical level - is hardly perceived. Against this background, the TAB report provides an overview of the current technical status of available energy storage systems and innovative storage concepts in both the stationary and mobile sectors.
Energy storage systems play a key role in supply systems by making it possible or easier to match energy supply to demand that varies over time. Especially for the "volatile" energy forms of electricity and heat, there are only a few economically attractive technologies for storing large amounts of energy (e.g. ... mehr
