Solar-plus-storage vs grid enhancement part II

A new IRENA report highlights how large-scale storage systems can be thought of as “virtual power lines” that enhance the performance and reliability of power networks when congestion occurs.

It expects global storage capacity from large-scale batteries to grow from about 11 GWh at present to between 100 GWh and 167 GWh by 2030.

Large-scale, front-of-the-meter stationary storage could significantly reduce investments in peak generation and grid reinforcements, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency’s (IRENA) new Utility-scale batteries – Innovation Landscape Brief report.
