Is Peak Shifting/Lopping More Effectively Done By A General Purpose Storage Technology Or A Specific Energy Shifting Technology Like Flow Batteries?

  • How often is peak shifting the top priority energy storage application for DSOs and by what margin over other applications?
  • To what extent does energy storage system design for multitasking & benefit stacking risk compromising the system’s energy shifting performance?
  • Do flow batteries make available their full nameplate capacity for repetitive energy-shift cycling?
