The Mindshift Needed for Utility-integrated Energy Storage

The Mindshift Needed for Utility-integrated Energy Storage

The utility-integrated software control platform must run on open standards to ensure the broadest interoperability with different suppliers and different technologies. The entire system requires intelligence at both the local and central-control level because the local level is where response time can be guaranteed and adjustments quickly affected. However, it is at the control-center level that fleet-wide considerations and bulk power system opportunities are best evaluated. Indeed, by building system intelligence so that applications can be quickly developed, precisely configured, and dynamically prioritized, utilities will end up with a software framework for rapid innovation that ensures storage resources will have their maximum positive impact.
