Fundamentals of Battery Storage
April 26, 2022 | Denver, CO
Battery energy storage systems (BESS) can be used for a variety of applications, including frequency regulation, demand response, transmission and distribution infrastructure deferral, integration of renewable energy, and microgrids. Different battery technologies can enable different applications that can provide various benefits to utility services, Independent System Operator (ISO) services, Regional Transmission Organization (RTO) services, and consumer services. Because electricity supply and demand on the power system must always be in balance, real-time energy production across the grid must always match the ever-changing loads.
Thanks to performance improvements and cost declines, battery storage is a force to be reckoned with. The advent of economical BESS at scale is now a major contributor to the balancing process. This course will give an in-depth overview of battery storage, including the history, the growing need for storage, types of energy storage, benefits, and the potential for storage. In addition, it will address battery storage applications and market dynamics as well as decarbonization case studies and the future of energy storage.
- Review the basics of energy storage
- Provide an overview of battery storage
- Review battery storage applications and the market dynamics
- Discuss utility case studies
- Evaluate regulatory and planning best practices for storage
