Techno-economic analysis of battery energy storage for reducing fossil fuel use
This study, commissioned by the Faraday Institution, explores how battery storage technologies can be viable and competitive in sub-Saharan Africa. In partnership with DNV GL, we explored the potential of battery systems replacing fossil fuel generator use. TFE performed value chain analyses of batteries and generators used in mini-grids and small-scale behind-the-meter power generation. The report also covers a comprehensive techno-economic model and an analysis of batteries and generators at utility scale.
