As discussion around development of a smart grid has steadily increased, so too has talk about smart microgrids. A critical ingredient for smart microgrids is energy storage. Energy storage can play a major role in facilitating use of renewable energy resources to power microgrids, while also protecting power stability and reliability within the microgrid. Energy storage technology has advanced significantly in recent years, and the latest technology holds many promising benefits for microgrid applications. In fact, these new energy storage technologies require a complete rethinking of what microgrids are capable of doing. This paper will review the impact of energy storage on smart microgrids, and will also look at a few real-world applications of energy storage within a microgrid.

Our power grid is susceptible to coastal flooding today. Rising seas and higher storm surge mean that unless we take purposeful action to adapt to worsening conditions, the electric power sector will become even more vulnerable to crippling outages over time. With our safety, health, and daily lives tightly intertwined with electricity, it has become increasingly critical that we limit the risk of such impacts. We must, therefore, apply foresight to long-term planning for the power grid; encourage the purposeful adoption of distributed clean energy solutions that bolster the electricity resilience of our communities to help them cope with unavoidable future disasters; and pursue electricity generation policies that prioritize clean energy to limit the scope of future climate impacts.

Distributed energy resources allow electricity to be generated closer to where it is used, protecting businesses and institutions from unexpected outages caused by natural disasters and other disruptions. The U.S. national laboratories as well as public private partnerships provide financial resources and access to research facilities to foster innovations to modernize the power sector from a 100-year-old centralized system to one that incorporates disparate clean technologies such as microgrids, batteries, and energy smart tools. These investments and the resulting new products and capabilities decrease costs, improve grid reliability, reduce emissions, and offer consumers more options.

Oncor’s innovative system comprises four interconnected microgrids and uses nine different distributed generation sources, including inverter- and non-inverter-based energy resources that can disconnect from – and reconnect to – the main utility grid. Schneider Electric enabled reactive and predictive control of the microgrid’s DERs with two best-in-class components: PowerLogicTM Microgrid Controller and StruxureWare™ Demand-Side Operation. The Microgrid Controller provides real-time management of distributed generation resources to ensure the right balance between the energy produced and consumed. The controller also safeguards operations and switches seamlessly from a grid-connected mode to an off-grid mode to ensure a reliable source of power for critical loads.

There are many drivers for large utility customers to consider implementation of microgrids. Increasing incidents of serious storms causing long-term power outages in densely populated areas and new threats such as cyber-attacks are highlighting vulnerabilities to critical missions. The growing availability of Financial incentives including demand response and grid services make on-site power generation more viable. There are many scenarios and regions of the country where both utilities and customers can benefit from a properly implemented and operated microgrid through improved power reliability and more efficient energy generation and consumption. As implementation of smart grid technologies increases in utility distribution networks, there will be even more potential for utilities and customers to optimize distributed energy resources. Utilities should consider development and operation of microgrids for large utility customers as part of their growth strategies.

Data continues to grow at an astounding pace? As a result, data center space is becoming more scarce, as more arrays are acquired to store all of this data. Along with this data taking up space, it is also utilizing a great deal of power and cooling. In fact, the average data center in the U.S. uses approximately 34,000 kW of electricity each year, costing $180,000 in annual energy costs. As Infinidat set out to revolutionize the storage industry, one of our goals was to help consumers of storage build a more sustainable infrastructure that would be not only better for the environment, but also help them to save money as well. All of our patents come together to form InfiniBox, a storage solution that does just this.

The energy landscape has become increasingly complex. Globally, we’re relying less on centralized, steady power sources – such as gas-fired and coal-fired power stations – and more on mixed, locally-distributed renewable energy supplies including solar, wind, tidal and battery. While this is positive for the environment and carbon emissions, it makes balancing power grids a much more complex task. Power quality and reliability becomes more variable in output, while demand for power continues to increase steadily. But when it comes to energy resilience, many organizations simply don’t know where to start. What solutions are available? Which are the best ones for their specific situation and physical premises? What will be their return on investment? Is it simply the cost of doing business, or is there actually a business case? The guide will give you the tools and data to build your understanding and quantify the benefit for your organization.

Many in the United States’ power generation industry no doubt long for the relative market tranquility of the late 20th century. The generation plants built and operated then were carbon-fueled or nuclear-powered, with a few hydro-electric plants sprinkled in. The economics were largely stable and predictable, often thanks to regulation that shielded utilities from market fluctuations. But even in those simpler times, when the market was far less volatile, there was still much due diligence required when investors and developers were considering multi-milliondollar commitments in new generation projects. Today’s market is more volatile, due in large part to the disruptive effect of low-cost natural gas and the subsequent, rapid growth of affordable renewable energy. As more uneconomical and inefficient generation plants go offline, there is, for the most part, sufficient carbon-free or carbon-reduced generation to meet the growing demand for electric energy. There are pockets of growth
