Advancing and Maximizing the Value of Energy Storage Technology: A California Roadmap

Posted: December 31, 2014 - 17:00 / CAISO / Reports

California is a worldwide leader in shifting to sustainable and renewable energy sources, including solar, wind and geothermal power, with the goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But by its nature, electricity must be used the instant it is generated, which makes solar and wind resources challenging to manage on the power grid. Power from these renewable generation sources is produced at different times of the day, and often does not align with the instantaneous demand for electricity.
