Panel Discussion: Addressing Grid Challenges and Economic Impacts of Higher Solar Generation

Date/Time: Tuesday, September 25, 2018, 9:30 – 10:30 AM

Location:  207CD

Description: Increasing penetration of solar energy is beginning to challenge the capacity limits of existing distribution grid infrastructure in certain locations, presenting unique challenges for system operators. This session will investigate case studies that highlight operational flexibility available in sophisticated utility-scale solar plants and demonstrate how aggregated intelligent energy storage solutions can overcome these challenges and serve as resources for grid stability.

Mark Hardin will be conducting a workshop at ESNA


Energy storage can be a highly technical, often confusing industry filled with inconsistent terminology and misleading metrics. Our most popular workshop teaches you how to make sense of it all and gain the knowledge you need to compare technologies, understand applications and use cases, evaluate costs, and conduct basic market valuations. This workshop provides energy storage neophytes with a basic foundational knowledge of concepts and technology. The session builds on this core understanding to provide deeper insight into battery-based energy storage concepts to teach you how to match battery technologies to applications, optimize battery system sizing, and evaluate battery energy storage project costs. This informative session employs simple analogies and examples combined with interactive exercises to translate technical concepts into valuable commercial skills for the energy storage industry.

Target Audience: General and non-technical. A great introduction to energy storage concepts, nomenclature, and system components.
