HOW CAN SYSTEM OPERATORS AND TSOS OBTAIN ANCILLARY SERVICES FROM DISTRIBUTED ENERGY STORAGE AND IMPROVE GRID RESILIENCE

On the island of Ireland EirGrid & SONI, the two TSOs and Market Operators, jointly operate a Single Electricity Market across the two jurisdictions. Our challenge is to manage the introduction of renewable generation to meet a 40% renewables target by 2020. On a small system the high penetration of wind generation requires the system to be operated in new and innovative ways – calling for market participants to provide greater flexibility and introducing new tools to manage and maintain the integrity of the power system. In parallel we recognise the increase in demand and storage activity in the market and behind the meter and are introducing new system services to address some of the power system consequences.

You can meet Robin McCormick, Director Of Operations, Planning & Innovation, and General Manager, EIRGRID, SONI (Ireland) at the 10th Energy Storage World Forum in Berlin on May 10th, 10:20am

The business case for energy storage

Can regulated utilities prove the business case for energy storage?

Many of the most talked about energy storage projects of 2017 were commissioned or supported by regulated utilities. The trend shows no sign of slowing down in 2018. Utilities in the United States, such as Portland General Electric in Oregon and the Public Regulation Commission in New Mexico are starting to include energy storage in…

Solid state magnesium battery

Can solid-state magnesium battery challenge lithium-ion energy storage?

There have been hundreds of attempts to find the battery chemistry that will challenge the dominance of lithium-ion. Magnesium energy storage has been a theoretically attractive, but practically impractical proposition. Researchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory in conjunction with MIT have published a study showing potential magnesium mobility in a battery….
