Storage Duration Needs with the New Microgrid Focus

July 28, 2021
Energy Storage (including Pumped Storage)
With new'new'focus on microgrids, the storage duration needed changes, with 30 minutes to two hours needed for fast-start CTs vs the 10-hour-duration storage. What are the new approaches for this new situation? Panelists will discuss smaller, more deployable modular pumped storage units, hybrid systems, and removing variable speed with batteries.
