While individual clean energy technologies are the building blocks of clean energy transitions, it is also necessary to employ energy integration systems to maximise their impact by increasing system flexibility. Although advances in the area of energy storage were impressive in 2018, market designs and regulations need to evolve to reward the huge benefits these increasingly crucial integration technologies have to offer. Innovation efforts should therefore focus on trialling integration technologies at large scale under a variety of market conditions.
