Distributed electricity generation from renewable sources, such as rooftop photovoltaic panels, does not always generate electricity when it is needed. Both undersupply and oversupply can lead to problems in the wider electricity distribution system. This scoping study will investigate the potential to integrate electrical and thermal energy storage systems of different scales into mini and micro grids, to enable greater use of distributed generation from renewable energy sources.
