The increasing need for flexible power systems due to the growing generation of renewable energy sources (RES) and the role of energy storage systems, particularly electrochemical technologies, in supporting RES deployment are a main topic in the energy and electrical sectors.
The challenges of integrating energy storage technologies with electricity and highlights the importance of energy storage in addressing the variability of wind and solar power plants are crucial. The International Energy Agency predicts a significant increase in battery storage capacity, with a projected installation of 600 GW by 2030 to achieve a net-zero-emissions scenario by 2050. The text also mentions the use of lithium-ion batteries, such as those used in the "Resilient Home" project by Green Mountain Power, to provide backup power capabilities to customers and support the grid during issues. It further explores the concept of vehicle-to-everything (V2X), including vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle-to-home (V2H) services, and highlights battery storage as a mature technology.
