“The future of energy storage” workshop will take place on 27 June 2018 from 11:30 to 15:30 within Sustainable Places 2018 in Aix-Les-Bains, France.
Energy storage will affect the entire electricity value chain as it replaces peaking plans, alters future transmission and distribution (T&D) investments, reduces intermittency of renewables, restructures power markets and helps to digitize the electricity ecosystem. For utilities, battery storage will become an integral tool for managing peak loads, regulating voltage and frequency, ensuring reliability from renewable generation, and creating a more flexible transmission and distribution system. For their customers, storage can be a tool for reducing costs related to peak energy demand.
The workshop is organized by the HYBUILD project.
Other Horizon 2020 projects presented include:
