Is Storage the Solution for Grid Congestion?

panel

40 min.

Despite all the benefits, there is a negative impact of a strong PV and wind market on the electricity grid. The adoption of more intermittent energy in an overloaded national grid creates the need for immediate solutions that can help the renewable energy market continue to grow and to fulfill the energy demands of the country. One such solution is energy storage. Find out some best practices and case studies from the grid operators themselves during this session.
