Join us at our upcoming Downtown Luncheon focused on the ever-evolving world of large scale battery storage!
Energy storage installations around the world are projected to grow rapidly over the next decade. The S&P Global Market Intelligence Power Forecast projects the US will add over 85 GW of utility-scale battery energy storage capacity by 2035. And Texas leads the pack with more than 29 GW in planning, or 40% of the US pipeline.
We'll hear from Co-Founder and CTO of Tierra Climate, Emma Konet, who will lead an exciting conversation around this rapidly developing industry. Terra Climate is a clean-tech start-up that creates a marketplace for sustainability-minded corporates to purchase carbon avoidance offsets sourced from grid-scale batteries.
