Grid Energy Storage

Grid Energy Storage

Energy storage technologies—such as pumped hydro, compressed air energy storage, various types of batteries, flywheels, electrochemical capacitors, etc., provide for multiple applications: energy management, backup power, load leveling, frequency regulation, voltage support, and grid stabilization. There are four challenges related to the widespread deployment of energy storage: cost competitive energy storage technologies (including manufacturing and grid integration), validated reliability and safety, equitable regulatory environment, and industry acceptance. Issues that are being explored in this paper focus on reducing system costs through targeted application of science and engineering research and development for new storage concepts, materials, components and systems.

This course sets out potential options to improve energy storage. It also presents a number of specific actions that could help maintain both scientific advancements and a pipeline of project deployments. It describes the present state of energy storage in the US, as well as international projects that could serve as a near-term template for US investment and growth. It describes the present state of technology for energy storage, including the applications and opportunities for each technology type and discusses the barriers and challenges to widespread adoption of grid-storage techniques.
