The development of distributed, grid-scale energy storage systems offers great promise for improving the reliability, safety and cost of the electrical grid.? The need for utility-scale grid storage is being driven by rapid growth of intermittent renewable energy, such as wind power, as well as load growth and under investment in transmission & distribution assets.? A significant number of new energy storage technologies are being developed which could offer solutions to these and other issues facing the grid.? Tom will discuss the recent advances in energy storage and its benefits, such as frequency regulation (one of the most deployed applications to date), as well as enhanced system reliability, and increased penetration of renewable energy:
1.? Introduction to Grid Storage and Primus Power
2.? Technology Overview
3.? Current benefits and deployment examples
4.? Future/potential benefits
