This is a great blog post from Younicos CEO Steven Prince. In a sector when we can all get a little hung up on technologies, chemistries and business models it's refreshing to read some concise and clear opinion or analysis.
These three core drivers are behind all the businesses we work with and indeed our own. The world is moving at pace, it's great to play a part in the journey toward this decarbonised, decentralised and digital future.
The global energy sector is undergoing fundamental change – sweeping away entrenched business models while creating new opportunities. While predicting the outcome of this ongoing disruption is notoriously difficult, it’s a safe bet that intelligent energy storage will be a key building block of Grid 2.0. Why? Well, if you take a step back, it’s relatively easy to identify three trends driving the ongoing global reshaping of the energy landscape: decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitisation. As the landscape evolves, charting a safe course requires understanding each of these three Ds - while embracing storage early will help energy users and producers buffer any shocks when the road gets rocky.
