Utilities Middle East
In their guest column for Utilities Middle East magazine, BCG’s Cristiano Rizzi, Massimiliano Masi, and Simon Birkebaek write about the future of energy storage in the Middle East. They outline the main use cases for energy storage and consider the viability of these solutions in enabling a fully renewable power sector in the region. The authors suggest that the complex problem of decarbonizing the power sector requires a “multitude of levers” beyond renewable and battery storage alone. These levers must be pulled in tandem in order to manage the increasing demand.
