Energy Storage Technologies Are Rewriting the Industry Rules

New York is one of the states that is trying to adapt to the changes that technologies bring to the energy industry. Funding innovative energy storage projects helps shape the industry in the desired direction and change the market conditions.

There is a growing trend in the power sector to move in the direction where customers can generate electricity as well and sell the excess energy back to the utilities. Some of the market players participating in the Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative view energy storage as important component to adopting renewable energy and an essential factor to stabilize the flow of electricity and respond to fluctuations to meet the demands.

Arizona, California and Nevada are some of the states that try to incorporate energy storage to extend the capabilities of renewable energies like wind and solar.

The majority of the projects that combine solar power with storage are in response to California regulations intended to solve the problem that occurs in the evening when solar power output drops off and necessity emerges for immediate power sources.

Smart Grid and Energy Storage

The Smart Grid and Energy Storage Systems

What makes a grid smart? For most European countries, the grid as we know it — the electrical power transmission network consisting of transmission lines, transformers, substations and much more — was built in the early 20th century. A century later, it is beginning to transform into something much smarter. What makes a power grid…

Applications of Energy Storage

Where can energy storage systems (ESS) generate value? Applications can range from ancillary services to grid operators to reducing costs “behind-the-meter” to end users. Battery energy storage systems (BESS) have seen the widest variety of uses, while others such as pumped hydropower, flywheels and thermal storage are used in specific applications. Applications for Grid Operators…
