60 seconds: Energy storage

When we produce more electricity from wind than we need, can we store that electricity? Our new 60-seconds video lecture shows that energy can indeed be stored. While batteries probably are the storage facility that come to mind first, in fact pumped storage hydro-electricity is the most common way of storing energy generated by wind turbines. This video shows very briefly how this type of facility works and why energy storage, which plays a crucial part in the energy transition, is challenging. Read more here about energy storage.

This video is the eighth episode in a series of concise video lectures on offshore energy. You can still watch the previous episodes here. At DOB-Academy we have a passion for sharing knowledge and that is why we created this series. Easy to understand yet interesting for anyone from high school student to industry expert. Is there a topic you would like to learn more about in 60 seconds? Please let us know at and we will consider adding it to our series.
