Utility-Scale Energy Storage:Key to Resource Adequacy for Power Systems
Custom content for Mitsubishi Power by studioID
As power outages are growing more frequent and widespread, utilities are investigating ways to meet future demand with at-scale innovations in clean energy. The goal: to simplify the challenge of keeping supply and demand balanced across an increasingly dynamic grid.
Large-scale storage systems serve as an electrical shock absorber for the bulk power system. They time-shift energy and provide important ancillary services. With ample energy storage, surplus renewable energy can be moved when and where it’s needed. Such flexibility will be essential for utilities to thrive—and for grids to operate—as energy demand continues to rise.
In this playbook, we explore:
The future of large-scale, clean energy storage
Why many utilities and other organizations are investing in long-term storage options
How these storage systems work
The challenges and benefits of making a plan to adopt utility-scale energy storage
