Battery Storage Technologies and Potential Applications in Power Systems

Presented by:
Wei-Jen Lee, Professor and Director, University of Texas at Arlington

Thursday, July 12, 2018 | 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET

Electrical power infrastructures are changing dramatically around the globe due to Smart Grid initiatives, the establishment of renewables and the resulting distributed nature of creating electricity. As a result, the power network faces great challenges in generation, transmission and distribution to meet new and many times unpredictable demands of providing coherent electricity supply. Electrical Energy Storage (EES) has been considered a game-changer with a number of technologies that have great potential in meeting these challenges.

However, the wide variety of options and complex performance matrices can make it difficult to appraise a specific EES technology for a particular application. This presentation intends to contribute information that will give a Smart Grid user a clearer picture of the state-of-the-art electrochemical technologies available, and where they would be suited for integration into a power generation and distribution system.
