RP1013: Enabling Better Utilisation of Distributed Generation with Distributed Storage

Project leader name: 
Dr Peter Pudney
Project status: 
Complete
Project period: 
01/2014 to 06/2015

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.
