Power storage: the key to renewables’ success
Storage is quite possibly the greatest challenge currently facing the renewables industry. For these energies to become indispensable, we must be able to deliver the power they produce when we need it most, namely at night and in the winter. This means storing energy during the day and distributing it outside of periods of sunshine.
At Total, we are convinced that optimizing storage is key to the expansion of renewable energies, provided that it is backed by technologies that are safe and competitive, both economically and technically. Today, we are well placed to rise to this challenge with our affiliate Saft, the world leader in advanced-technology batteries for industry, whose next-generation lithium-ion batteries can store a large amount of electricity in a small amount of space.
