Enhancing Microgrid Performance and Economics with Energy Storage 

03-13-2018 15:52

Summary

Microgrids provide efficiency, resiliency, flexibility, and integration of renewable power. Energy Storage (ES) enhances their resiliency & flexibility, and maximizes use of intermittent wind or solar. If microgrids are purely electric, ES defaults to batteries with low efficiency, limited life, safety issues, and high cost. But combined electric-thermal microgrids, can use hot or cold Thermal Energy Storage. TES case studies show superior performance & economics compared to batteries.
