The webinar is part of the Greening the Grid platform, a USAID and NREL collaboration designed to support countries in integrating renewable energy into the power system.
Increasing need for system flexibility combined with rapid decreases in the system costs for battery technology have increased interest from policymakers and system operators about the potential role of battery energy storage systems (BESS) in power systems. BESS can perform a range of grid system services and can provide value to the power system through various applications, including transmission and distribution upgrade deferral, energy arbitrage, black starts, demand shifting, capacity firming and reductions in the curtailment of variable renewable energy. However, the value of BESS for system operators or project developers is location-specific and depends on many factors, including penetration levels of renewable energy, existing system flexibility and the regulatory context under which the BESS is deployed. This webinar will introduce key concepts for understanding the value of BESS, review the services they can provide to the grid, and explore when, where, why and how BESS can be deployed economically.
