The Age of Intelligent Storage: Distributed Systems, Smart Software and Control Systems
Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Energy storage is widely regarded as the key to integrating the growing penetration of renewable resources at the grid edge. Through optimized intelligent infrastructure and controls surrounding the battery, storage solutions are becoming able to economically and reliably address the challenges associated with the expansion of our modern power system.
Distributed commercial storage capacity in the U.S. could reach 100 MW this year and surpass 700 MW by 2020. With initiatives such as California's Self Generation Incentive Program offering subsidized storage systems based on energy capacity, coupled with increasingly attractive rooftop solar options, residential-scale deployments are similarly expected to support a larger growth going forward. Parallel to the software packages currently under development, many intelligent control and communication approaches are also being explored to enhance the performance of a dispersed fleet of storage devices.
