Bernard Ennis and Jacinta Schultz will describe the requirements and techno-economic issues at play in meeting the challenges presented as increasing amounts of renewable electricity entering the power grid. Grid stability i.e., maintaining voltage and frequency and avoiding blackouts, has emerged as a global issue as the percentage of renewables to the grid from all sources has increased. Wind and solar power systems are being deployed aggressively due to improving economics and public policy. These power sources are intermittent generators and rapid compensating capacity adjustments must be made in real time from other power generators. Electricity storage systems are set to play an essential role.

The speakers will present the European and U.S.A. experiences, assess the future risk, review current electricity storage technologies, and propose a novel solution.
