Abstract:

Utility scale battery storage will soon reach a level of maturity where the modular design of the technology and aggregation will allow custom built solutions for energy and ancillary service needs of the power system. Several projects are in the demonstration phase worldwide and hold promise for successful incorporation of battery storage into traditional power systems operations. The talk describes various technologies being developed, tested and installed today. Further, a grid scale application is described in detail.
