    Long-duration energy storage set for 'very steep' growth as sector enters commercial phase

    If you believe that lithium-ion batteries and pumped hydro are the only viable energy-storage options and that long-duration storage technologies are a long way from commercial reality, think again.

    For instance, UK start-up Highview Power, a pioneer in liquid-air energy storage, which has begun construction of two 50MW commercial projects in the US (400MWh) and the UK (250MWh), while German industrial giant Siemens Gamesa has plans to build its first commercial projects of up to 500MWh next year using its hot-rock thermal storage solution.
