Global Smart Grid Federation’s worldwide view gives electrical storage in power grids a real economical chance, if regulation is willing to assist.

Today, GSGF published a report on electrical storage in power grids, assessing the possibilities of battery storage in the electrical grid as viable, on a global scale. GSGF envisions that batteries will be firstly used for frequency control, followed by local peak shifting. When this happens, battery production should increase and costs should decrease, creating opportunities to use batteries for other applications as well, such a microgrids and renewable energy integration use. However, in the end regulation ...
