Energy Storage Isn’t Necessary for a Cleaner Grid

8 juli 2016

Highlights:

  • – Energy storage value increase with tighter carbon diocide (CO2) emissions limits.
  • – The marginal value of storage declines as storage penetration increases.
  • – Large-scale deployment of available battery technologies requires cost reductions.
  • – Energy storage increases utilization of the cheapest low-CO2 resources.
  • – Longer-duration storage increases the share of wind more than solar photovoltaics.
