"Globally, IRENA REmap 2030 report finds the share of renewables in the electricity sector must double to 45 per cent by 2030 and this would require an estimated 150 gigawatts of battery storage and 325 gigawatts of pumped storage hydroelectricity.

  • The Storage Revolution That Can Speed the Rise of Renewables

    The share of electricity from renewable energy sources has been growing exponentially, especially in Europe and North America. A 2015 report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), sets out a roadmap for energy storage. It suggests storage will help the renewable share of annual global power generation rise from 22% in 2014 to at least 27%, and possibly to as much as 40%, by 2030.
