Energy storage systems are increasingly recognized as a key element for smart grids. It comes at a time where batteries in particular are already dominating the portable devices and transportation sectors. It is noteworthy to mention how both sectors are being influenced by their higher electrification, and the increased flexibility they offer to consumers. This enhanced flexibility is a key feature for smart grid applications, where storage systems can participate as distributed energy systems in microgrids, increase energy resiliency for consumers and also shift their role from passive consumers to active partners.
