Energy efficiency at big box stores through remote PPAs, lighting and HVAC.
Electrolysis of water to create hydrogen fuel used in CHP projects. No CO2 emissions. Efficiencies greater than 90%.
Hydrogen generation from renewables could be mixed with gas to produce power.
Energy storage using silicon. Salt can heated to only 1,000 degrees, silicon 4,000 degrees. Light from silicon used by solar PV to generate power.
Energy storage will be a $4.5 BN by 2023. Energy storage Q3 2018 deployments in MWh rose 3x YOY. Energy storage annual deployments will reach 3.9 GW by 2023.
Energystorage to be $620 BN by 2040. Large-scale lithium-ion storage costs will fall another 52% by 2030, already had a 80%+ cost decline since 2010.
Record surge in venture funding of AgTech. Megatrends: Decentralization, decarbonisation and gas replacing diesel.
