Energy Storage: Novel Approaches for Integrated Storage Systems


Series: HYDROVISION Exchange
Date : November 17, 2020

Utilities around the world are looking for energy storage solutions to smooth the integration of intermittent renewable energy sources into the grid. Hydropower, both pumped storage and conventional, plays a vital role in providing energy storage. During this session, two technical papers will be presented, focused on the theme of novel approaches for providing integrated storage systems. One technical presentation will discuss the integration of three technologies – seawater pumped hydropower energy storage, seawater reverse osmosis, and renewable energy – into a single facility that can simultaneously provide clean energy generation, energy storage and fresh water. The second technical presentation will cover how hybrid energy storage systems composed of Li-ion batteries and ultracapacitors, enabled by a novel coordinated control system, can enable integrated hydropower and hybrid energy storage systems to provide fast frequency and voltage regulation.
