The versatility of energy storage, in particular batteries, at virtually any point of the grid (generation, transmission, distribution, residential/industrial) makes them an indispensable element of the smart grids. Their capability to store and release energy is key when, e.g. coupled with intermittent renewable energies whose peak production is not synchronized to the loads. Moreover, the interest and opportunities for grid connected energy storage is increasing as consumers demand hither energy independence. However, there is a wide range of energy storage technologies as research on materials continues to improve power and energy densities.
In this webinar, we will give a system level approach to energy storage that is particularly useful for grid applications. We will discuss the different technologies, and what opportunities and challenges consumers at all levels in all markets face.
