Distributed Energy Storage: Serving National Interests

Posted: April 10, 2012 - 16:06 / NaatBatt / Reports

The evolution of this envisioned grid-of-the-future is both supported and driven by numerous national energy policies, programs, and objectives. Distributed energy storage (DES) is a rapidly emerging and technology-neutral approach to accelerating the implementation of national energy policy and achieving the desired objectives – all while maintaining our electric grid system reliability, stability, and security.

By employing the nation’s innovations in advanced battery systems, DES is poised to help address the growing challenges our electric energy infrastructure will face as demand for electricity increases and as the distribution system must manage greater levels of distribution grid-connected and smart grid system-enabled technologies such as EVs, and renewable and distributed generation (DisGen).
