NSERC Energy Storage Technology Network
Energy storage has been identified by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) as a priority within its strategic target areas because Canada’s capacity to store energy is currently seen as an underdeveloped component in its energy-management capabilities.
The NSERC Energy Storage Technology Network (NESTNet) collaboratively explores many different types of energy storage, including flywheels, lithium-ion batteries and compressed air, while determining how best to integrate these technologies into electricity grids. In addition, researchers consider the implications arising from the increasing adoption of energy storage and how consumers will perceive, adopt and interact with these technologies. By partnering with the private sector, NESTNet enables directed progress — without duplication of efforts — towards a strong domestic Canadian energy storage industry that is also competitive in the global marketplace.
