“Electrical Energy Storage – Overview, Market Needs, Challenges and the Future Roles”
Electrical Energy Storage has played three primary roles. First, it reduces the cost of electricity costs by storing electricity during off-peak times for use at peak times. Secondly, it improves the reliability of the power supply by supporting the users during power interruptions. Thirdly, it improves power quality, frequency, and voltage. Electrical Energy storage is expected to solve many problems, including excessive power fluctuation and undependable power supply due to the use of high penetration levels of renewable energy. Electric vehicles with batteries are the most promising technology to replace fossil fuels with electricity from mostly renewable energy sources. This presentation will highlight the technology overview, market needs, challenges, and future roles of electrical energy storage.
