Techno-economic analysis of electricity storage systems
J. Oberschmidt, M. Klobasa and F. Genoese, Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research, Germany
Against the background of an increasing share of intermittent renewable energies in power generation, in the medium to long term, electricity storage could be a key technology of strategic importance with regard to grid stability, grid extension and security of supply. In this context, this chapter analyses the economic feasibility of applying electricity storage technologies in energy markets. Additionally, resource requirements and environmental aspects, as well as health and safety issues, resulting from electricity storage are examined. The focus is on stationary ...
