Energy Storage(ES) has been present on the grid for decades, for example the 20,000MW of pumped storage operating in the U.S. However, technology advances in both batteries and inverters have expanded functionality and lowered costs to the point that battery-based ES systems are now being actively deployed for a much wider range of applications, including renewables integration and microgrid implementation. This webinar will outline how ES reached this point of growing adoption, and highlight topics critical for continued ES adoption and effective integration, including, technical standards, safety codes, and useful collaboration across industry segments.
