Key takeaways

Delays in approving and building renewable projects, especially pumped hydro, pose significant obstacles to meeting decarbonisation targets.

There's a pressing need for more deep energy storage to support the reliability of carbon-free energy supply to vital industries like aluminum, mining, and green steel.

Super-hybrids integrate renewable energy sources with deep energy storage and the production of hydrogen and green methanol to significantly decarbonize the economy.
