Although wind and solar PV resources offer low-carbon, reasonably priced energy, they are inflexible and cannot respond to demand for electricity in the same way a thermal resource can. In addition, when wind and solar reach certain levels of penetration on a grid system – levels that are different for every grid – there are technical and market effects that grid operators must contend with, including demand/supply curves, negative pricing, and voltage disruptions. Energy storage has become a powerful and appealing alternative to upgrading grid infrastructure to solve these challenges.
Featuring Anissa Dehamna, senior research analyst with Navigant Research, and Parag Soni, associate director with Navigant, along with Peter Nortman, chief operating officer with CODA Energy, this examines the technologies, business models, and key players in the rapidly evolving market for energy storage for renewables integration. Global market forecasts and notable case studies are also provided.
