For Key Energy we will talk about storage: technological innovations and new solutions and other energy storage systems with a focus on the world of finance linked to the energy transition. According to many analysts, in fact, in the coming years the returns of funds and financial instruments linked to the energy transition could attract many investors and have explosive growth, probably even much higher than the already excellent performance of the so-called ´green investments´ of recent years.
