Storage Lab is a research hub for electrical energy storage. We investigate the future cost of storage and the value it can provide to low-carbon energy systems. Our projects combine academic research with industry expertise to develop meaningful economic and system-relevant insights on electricity storage. Storage Lab is led by Dr Oliver Schmidt.
