Evaluation of the energy storage systems impact on the Italian ancillary market
The increasing of Renewable Energy Source (RES) generation requires power systems to become more flexible, in order to manage injections variability and uncertainty at various timeframes. Energy storage systems, such as electrochemical technologies, represent a broadly deployable asset , which could support effectively RES deployment. The present paper describes a Mixed Integer Linear-constrained Programming (MILP) […]

CESI’ MODEL ON ENERGY STORAGE
CESI has published a new paper in which describes a Mixed Integer Linear-constrained Programming (MILP) model to simulate battery energy storage systems behavior within the Italian ancillary services market. The main purpose of the tool is to investigate the economic viability of storage technologies in the provision of network services. Comparing the proposed model to the […]
Storage & E-mobility
Storage infrastructures
Electrical power systems around the world are changing significantly and swiftly thanks to an energy transition that is mainly driven by the rapid increase of renewable energy sources (RES) and the evolution of generation and transmission technologies. Such changes require an innovative framework at system level to cope with emerging challenges and to take advantage […]

Operational studies
The ongoing decarbonization of power systems is introducing new challenges in terms of managing transmission and distribution networks while guaranteeing the security and resilience of the system: the generation mix is undergoing an evolution (in some cases a revolution), with more distributed generation coming onto the system, more alternative energy storage capacity being added, and […]
Renewables & Green Hydrogen
Solar
Solar PV is one of the most mature, commercially competitive and fastest-growing renewable energy technologies. Its cumulative installed capacity will rise to 8,519 GW by 2050, becoming the second biggest renewable energy source after wind. The challenges for grid-connected and stand-alone PV plants range from the availability of reliable energy yield assessments, sustainable design and […]
