Brian Von Herzen, Ph.D will be speaking on the topic of needing affordable energy storage globally to allow for greater penetration of renewables, particularly photovoltaic, and then describe underwater compressed energy storage (UWCAES) and pumped thermal energy storage (PTES), how it relates to the 50% renewable energy usage commitment Queensland has committed to by 2030. Even 100% renewables will not be enough to restore a healthy climate. We will need to accelerate the removal and sequestering of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
