Across the EU, buildings are responsible for generating 40% of all energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions. Tackling this problem is a key step in reaching net zero targets. The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) was established to ensure a significant reduction in emissions from new and existing buildings.
The future of sustainable, clean energy relies on renewables. Unfortunately, that comes with a problem. Solar and wind are cheap forms of electricity but they rely on the right conditions to work. This sort of intermittent power cannot provide enough energy to completely reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. The electricity supply needs to be consistent, reliable and capable of handling surges in demand. That is where battery technology comes in.
