Eaton to shake up GCC energy storage marketon Mar 30, 2017
Energy storage systems are becoming crucial components in the development of smarter grids, and the trend is picking up very fast in the GCC. New technologies are facilitating a wider adoption and deployment of renewable generation, and they hold the potential to give people greater control over their energy supply and consumption.
