Making the Grid Smarter with Smart Energy Storage: Part 2

Last week, we discussed how a smart grid relies on better coordinating electricity supply and demand to create a system that is efficient, inexpensive, and based on renewable energy sources. We also talked about several components of the smart grid, including self-healing, flexible distribution, load adjustment, load shifting, and how energy storage plays a role in each.

For the past hundred years, electricity has been consumed the moment it is created. Storage can change this and allow for better coordination between energy supply and demand.
