Power Storage ROI - When, Where, Why? — Thu, March 30, 2023
Energy storage costs are estimated to experience a 33% decline by 2030. While a valuable investment, there is no one-size-fits-all application for power storage coupled with EV charging stations. Consider the elements such as power storage duration, degradation, upfront, and operational costs, and speed of taking energy back to the grid to choose when, where, and why power storage is worth your investment. In this session, attendees will:
