ESS releases new issue brief in partnership with Citizens For Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES)
ESS, in partnership with Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions and the U.S. Energy Association, released an issue brief detailing the critical need for long-duration energy storage (LDES) to create an efficient, low-carbon energy system and avoid the curtailment of renewable energy resources. The brief, which analyzes curtailment data from grid operators nationwide, illustrating the mismatch between renewable energy supply and grid demand and demonstrating the need for long-duration energy storage to decarbonize the energy system.

Enabling 24/7 Clean Energy | By Hugh McDermott, SVP Sales and Business Development
Long-duration energy storage (LDES) will play a critical role in the decarbonized economy as society increasingly relies upon intermittent wind and solar energy generation to provide reliable energy around the clock. Growing recognition of this is driving demand for new LDES technologies like ESS iron flow batteries. By providing up to 12 hours of energy storage on a single charge, these technologies make it possible for renewable energy to provide baseload power while also enhancing grid resilience and reliability.
