Energy storage for electric power systems

Michael Giberson

Sandia National Lab has just published a study of energy storage applications for the electric grid: “Energy Storage for the Electricity Grid: Benefits and Market Potential Assessment Guide.” John Petersen at Alt Energy Stocks said:

I’ve been following the work in progress on this report since last summer and have eagerly awaited the opportunity to shift my focus away from the overhyped electric vehicle sector and focus on something with real meat. It looks like my time has finally come. For technology types that want a detailed understanding of what the various potential utility-scale applications for energy storage are, the entire 232 page report is a must read.

Petersen then provides an overview of the report’s information from the point of view of a potential investor.
