Energy storage in electricity grids
ITA (2018) Energy storage in electricity grids. ITA dossier no. 37en (May 2018; Author: Michael Ornetzeder).
The shift towards greater use of renewable energy necessitates more dedicated storage in electrical power systems to provide short-term flexibility. Electricity storage facilitates the decoupling of electricity supply and demand, and can be used to provide a wide range of ancillary services. The future deployment of dedicated electricity storage in Austria and the EU will be strongly influenced by future policies for electricity market design, system operating rules, technology investments, and involvement of consumers and prosumers.
