NREL teams w/ @ComEd on microgrid-integrated storage solution to get more solar on the grid

NREL Teams With ComEd on Microgrid-Integrated Storage Solution to Get More Solar on the Grid February 22, 2016 Effectively integrating large amounts of renewable energy such as solar photovoltaics (PV) onto the electric grid requires finding ways to manage the inherent variability of the resource. That's where energy storage technologies like batteries come in—when integrated into PV systems, storage can allow solar to power homes and businesses even after the sun sets, or when clouds go by. This is why, as part of the Energy Department's Grid Modernization Initiative , the SunShot Initiative recently awarded $18 million to six projects under the new Sustainable and Holistic Integration of Energy Storage and Solar PV (SHINES) program. These projects will enable the development and demonstration of integrated, scalable, and cost-effective solar technologies that incorporate...
