Let’s make Finland a forerunner in energy storage technologies!

Aalto's researchers have come together to solve the energy storage challenge that comes with renewable energy and in this occasion focus is how to reduce the need for energy storage. Reductions could be harnessed from demand side management where development of smart grids and electrification of transportation enable new possibilities. We also look at implications of large scale energy storage on the energy system. Get a wide perspective on the forefront of the research and join us to envision the future. This event is the last part in a series of three breakfast seminars on energy storage futures.

Register here. Registration closes 25.5.
