From the Editor: Energy Storage Gives Us The Power of Flexibility

When we consider the rapid rise of energy storage technology that we are witnessing all across the globe, it is key that we remember all of the reasons that this technology is and/or will be a key component in the grid of the future. Today’s energy storage is not just about having a battery backup for a solar PV system (although consumers are using batteries this way in record numbers). No, the rapid increase in energy storage technology is being driven by engineers all along the electricity spectrum from transmission operators who are deploying large-scale grid-connected energy storage to generate electricity when the grid is compromised through to distribution engineers who are using energy storage as a grid management tool to smooth out ramp events that are caused by rapid increases or decreases in electricity produced by solar PV or wind turbines. Further down the line...
