• Along with several other options, storage systems for electrical energy areconsidered as a key technology of the energy transition. • In the future, the greatest storage requirements will be in the area of long-term storage (storing across seasons and years). • Consequences, risks and potential for conflicts are manifold and largely depend on respective technologies and forms of application. • A lack of storage facilities is currently not an obstacle to the expansion of renewable energy sources in the electricity sector
