Battery Storage, Renewable Energy & Building a Sustainable Grid

Cambridge Associates

More than two-thirds of our electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels, a major climate change contributor. As such, use of renewable energy is expected to double in the next 15 years. But there’s a catch: the power they generate depends on variable factors like wind and sun, making them too unreliable to power our grid.

Recent battery innovations could be the solution. One company has developed an iron-air battery capable of storing energy for multiple days, which may be the missing link needed to decarbonize our grid for good.

Join us to learn more from Mateo Jaramillo and Jocelyn Newhouse (Form Energy); Dipender Saluja (Capricorn Investment Group); Anders Lyngaa Kristoffersen (The Velux Foundations); and Di Tang (Cambridge Associates).
