Microgrids With 50 Percent Solar Do Not Need Storage

ABB has raised the upper limit for microgrid renewable-energy penetration without storage. Research by the company suggests up to 50 percent intermittent generation could be admitted to microgrids without needing storage, provided that automation systems are in place to keep the grid stable. Traditionally, the upper limit for renewable energy penetration in microgrids without storage has been around 40 percent of total load. ABB looked at a range of microgrid scenarios, including low-penetration setups where renewable energy covered up to 30 percent of peak load, medium penetration at 50 percent, and high penetration at 100 percent. “When you look at a low-penetration system, if you design and maintain it properly, you don’t need much more capex upfront,” said ABB’s microgrid global sales manager, Pablo Astorga, at the Microgrid Global Innovation Forum in Barcelona this mo...
