In this series, we will hear about:
- The ecological future of our planet
- The communication and scepticism of green ideas
- Advances and directions in energy and sustainability
- Animal habitats and human impact
Join us on the 4th May at 3pm BST / 2pm GMT/ 10am ET for episode ten in our series, with Dr Noah Kittner, University of North Carolina. In this Researcher Live event, Dr Noah Kittner will discuss a recent publication 'Cross-sector storage and modeling needed for deep decarbonization'.
As utilities, companies, and countries are taking action to decarbonize their energy systems, there is increasing discussion about energy storage. Here, we present our perspective that this discussion should broadly consider how energy storage can help renewable electricity meet the needs of a decarbonized energy system rather than a narrower focus on a decarbonized electricity grid, and suggest a taxonomy that facilitates the discussion and stimulates our creativity toward designing new solutions.

Dr Noah Kittner is an assistant professor in energy in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering, Gillings School of Global Public Health and in the Environment, Ecology, and Energy Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research examines the role of energy storage in the transition to low-carbon energy systems and deep decarbonization.
Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
