The Energy Storage Partnership (ESP)

The Challenge

To integrate variable renewable energy resources into grids, energy storage is key. Energy storage allows for the increased use of wind and solar power, which can not only increase access to power in developing countries, but also increase the resilience of energy systems, improve grid reliability, stability, and power quality, essential to promoting the productive uses of energy.

ESMAP is supporting developing countries in deploying energy storage through providing access to concessional finance, technical assistance, and addressing key knowledge gaps through an international Energy Storage Partnership (ESP).
