IEEE Atlanta PES Lunch Meeting: “Battery Energy Storage for System Flexibility with Solar Generation”

November 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Abstract: Proliferation of solar generation continues to grow as incentives and lower costs drive the technology forward. As the total installed capacity grows, utilities are facing issues that include excess generation during times of peak sunlight and intermittency due to nature of renewable resources. Battery energy storage is gaining traction as a means to support solar generation to achieve energy arbitrage and firm intermittency. This presentation will discuss drivers, applications, and system architectures for battery energy storage combined with solar…
