Transmission and distribution systems were not historically engineered to accommodate energy storage. However, a surge in roll out of the technology appears inevitable over the next decades. To help enable this aspect of the transition from the legacy to the next-generation electricity grid, standards development around energy storage has intensified.
The goal is to provide hardware manufacturers, utilities, energy service companies and other industries and institutions with standardized test procedures with regard to verifying conformance of energy-storage systems to interconnection standards.
Such standards ultimately help advance energy-storage technologies along to the marketplace for the benefit of humanity. In addition, the role of IEEE Standards Association, is to provide a forum in which industry experts can collaborate and develop the standards that they deem as necessary.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
