Capacity: Amount of energy that can be stored, Energy/power density: Amount of energy/power per unit volume. Response time: Time needed for response, Lifetime: Number of cycles (or years), Efficiency: Ratio of energy discharged to energy needed for charge
Explanation of battery storage technical characteristics

Overview of battery storage technical characteristics

This overview of technical characteristics of battery storage summarises important performance indicators of battery storage characteristics and gives hints as to why they are, or are not, suited for different types of applications.

Come back to this overview later to evaluate whether specific batteries are suited for specific applications.
