Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is battery storage?

    Battery storage, also known as battery energy storage systems (BESS) is a type of electrical energy storage system (EESS). In this course we discuss short duration storage technologies such as Li-Ion batteries and Flow batteries.

  • How can energy storage increase the value of your project?

    Having energy storage allows renewable power producers the flexibility to shape their generation profile and deliver energy to the grid when it is the most valuable.. With co-located energy storage, producers can mitigate the effects of price cannibalisation or de-risk their market exposure under various types of PPAs. However success is only possible with the optimal energy storage configuration and price modelling.
