We are excited to invite you to the upcoming Net-Zero Heat webinar on the future of thermal flexibility for energy system decarbonization. There will be two sessions held on the 4th of May, 9:00-10:30 CET (APAC/EMEA-friendly) and 17:00-18:30 (Americas/EMEA-friendly). The webinar will highlight the applicability of thermal storage technologies for heat decarbonization, focusing on applications for industry and buildings. This webinar will be hosted by members of the Long Duration Energy Storage (LDES) Council with McKinsey & Company as knowledge partner of the Council, providing insights.
Launched at COP26, the LDES Council is a CEO-led organization that strives to provide fact-based guidance to governments and industry, drawing from the experience of its members, which include leading energy companies, technology providers, investors, and end-users.
Council members will share insights from their inaugural Net-Zero Heat report, where the challenges of heat decarbonization and opportunities for thermal flexibility and storage across industrial and buildings applications will be explored. Key findings of the report will be shared, followed by a live plenary panel discussion with representative Council members and thermal storage experts. The panel will also take questions from the audience.
The report is the result of months of research and collaboration of Council members and highlights the critical role of thermal flexibility in aligning supply and demand as global energy systems decarbonize. Early modeling insights show that system-wide thermal flexibility could result in the need for ~30% less heat generation capacity and ~15% less power generation capacity. The full Net-Zero Heat report will be available for COP27 on the LDES Council website.
