Horizons: Storage — the Key to Making Renewable Energy Work
Renewable energy generation is now often cheaper than fossil fuels. The problem? It often can't be deployed when and where it is needed. The ability to store energy at scale could have a dramatic effect on increased renewables penetration and on global grid stability and resiliency. Malta, a graduate of Alphabet's Moonshot Factory (formerly Google X), is based in Kendall Square and is developing a solution that can store large amounts of energy for long durations. CEO Ramya Swaminathan will talk about Malta's system and other types of energy storage, how storage could transform the energy industry as we know it today, and what needs to happen at federal, state, and local levels to ensure its speedy adoption.
Presented as part of Horizons: Exploring Breakthroughs in Science & Technology and Their Impact on Society, a lecture series of the STEAM Initiative at the Cambridge Public Library.
