Distributed Energy Storage in Urban Smart Grids

Distributed Energy Storage in Urban Smart Grids

Edited by Paulo F. Ribeiro, Rafael S. Salles

Renewable energy is key to stopping climate change, however, the intermittent nature of most forms of renewable energy generation poses a challenge. Energy storage is therefore a focus of research and development, particularly for urban areas with their limited space and high population density, which results in massive demand for both small distributed and utility-scale generation. Such locations require thorough integration of storage, with the urban energy system treated as a whole, and sufficient planning, sizing and siting, and upgrades to the existing power grid hardware.

This book conveys the technology for energy storage for urban areas, treating the urban power grid as a system, and providing an integrated picture. After an introduction to the energy transition and urban grids, chapters cover experiences and principles regarding distributed energy and storage, grid resilience, EV usage and charging infrastructure, standards and grid codes, monitoring and power quality, hosting capacity, intelligent electricity markets, and integrated operation.

Written by international experts in the field, Distributed Energy Storage in Urban Smart Grids offers valuable insights to researchers and professionals from academic institutions, grid operators and the storage technology industry.
