DNV GL research paper ‘The promise of seasonal storage’ finds that price of seasonal storage, if based on compressed hydrogen, could become cost-competitive with alternative forms of long-term storage. Rise of synthetic fuels can provide a critical stepping-stone for the use of seasonal storage applications. Overall need for additional storage solutions is lower than expected. Growing number of electric vehicles in our transport system will provide most of the needed energy storage solutions.

Interface between renewable energy projects and grid operators can be assessed faster. Digital measurement environment and test setup reduce costs for the preparation of certification in the manufacturing process. Mobile solution enables more flexible and hence cost-effective measurement of individual components.
