    DTU's 2013 Energy Report: Energy Storage Key to Renewables

    The focus of the recently released Technical University of Denmark’s (DTU) International Energy Report 2013 is energy storage. According to the report, one of the greatest challenges in the transition to a non-fossil energy system with a high share of fluctuating renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, is to align consumption and production in an economically satisfactory manner. Energy storage technologies can store energy in the form of thermal, electrical, chemical, kinetic or potential energy and return it when needed. Example energy storage methods include subsoil heat, water pumped into high reservoirs, flywheels, batteries and fuel for the transport sector.
