The Role of Energy Storage in Smart Microgrids

S & C Electric Company

As discussion around development of a smart grid has steadily increased, so too has talk about smart microgrids. A critical ingredient for smart microgrids is energy storage. Energy storage can play a major role in facilitating use of renewable energy resources to power microgrids, while also protecting power stability and reliability within the microgrid. Energy storage technology has advanced significantly in recent years, and the latest technology holds many promising benefits for microgrid applications. In fact, these new energy storage technologies require a complete rethinking of what microgrids are capable of doing.

This paper will review the impact of energy storage on smart microgrids, and will also look at a few real-world applications of energy storage within a microgrid.
