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

Hybrid energy storage: Are combined solutions gaining ground?

Combining component parts into hybrid systems to reap the benefits has always been an attractive prospect. In the past years, successful projects have come online for both solar-plus-storage and wind-plus-storage — the resiliency of battery energy storage combined with the financial boost from power generation. So what does hybrid refer to in the world of…

Evaluating The Economics Of Gas Storage For The Grid

Power-to-gas is the method of turning electricity into hydrogen gas using electrolysis. The resulting hydrogen can then be used as vehicle fuel, combined with carbon dioxide to make methane (a natural gas replacement), or injected into natural gas infrastructure as hydrogen in low concentrations. If made from surplus renewable electricity, the generated hydrogen is low-carbon…
