Technology Roadmap Energy storage to 2050

rural poor


Our goal is to have every single person connected to power by the year 2020. This would be an achievement whose impact rivals the innovation of the telegraph, or the development of the telephone. Powerstorm ESS is the catalyst needed to electrify off grid communities and to catapult them into the next generation of emerging economies. We can make this next milestone in communications happen. 

Providing WiFi, Broadband, and mobile device access to communities in need will have exponential benefits for telecom and service sectors, as well as entire societies. A network’s value is increased every time a new user joins, which means added benefits for all users of the network and accelerated growth of the network. We believe this principle is at the core of our work: that increased connectivity benefits us all. The power of all of humanity becoming connected is so awesome in scale that technologists and economists have a difficult time ascribing characteristics and value to it.

At Powerstorm® ESS, we are focused on bringing the next generation of people online. We are building the architecture and the tools to serve rural areas and small villages in developing countries. With our patent-pending containerized energy storage solutions, we are poised to enrich the lives of those who have not yet enjoyed the opportunity to learn, discover and communicate outside their rural environment.


Technology Roadmap Energy storage to 2050

Knowledgebase ImageCurrent trends in energy supply and use are patently unsustainable – economically, environmentally and socially. Without decisive action, energy-related emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) will more than double by 2050 and increased fossil energy demand will heighten concerns over the security of supplies. We can and must change our current path, but this will take an energy revolution; and low-carbon energy technologies will have a crucial role to play. Energy efficiency, many types of renewable energy, carbon capture and storage (CCS), nuclear power and new transport technologies will all require widespread deployment if we are to sharply reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Every major country and sector of the economy must be involved. The task is urgent if we are to make sure that investment decisions taken now do not saddle us with sub-optimal technologies in the long term. 

Awareness is growing on the need to turn political statements and analytical work into concrete action. To spark this movement, at the request of the G8 nations, the International Energy Agency (IEA) is leading the development of a series of roadmaps for some of the most important technologies. By identifying the steps needed to accelerate the implementation of radical technology changes, these roadmaps will enable governments, industry and financial partners to make the right choices – and in turn help societies to make the right decisions.
