Batteries for emerging economies

Between 750-800 million people globally lack access to a reliable source of electricity. One possible solution to enhance the reliability of energy supply and maximise power availability from low-carbon, renewable energy sources is the increased use of battery energy storage. In the latest event in partnership with the Faraday Institution, we take a deep dive into the research, systems engineering, and logistical challenges of accelerating the deployment of batteries in emerging economies.
