Energy Storage in Electric Power Grids
Publication Date: June 2015 Hardback 306 pp.
The storage of electrical energy is a long-standing issue that has been only very partially resolved to date, particularly from an economic perspective. The development of renewable energies and the need for means of transport with reduced CO2 emissions have generated new interest in storage, which has become a key component of sustainable development. The aim of this book is to contribute to the better understanding of both existing storage technologies and those that are under development, particularly with regard to their management and economic enhancement.
Across seven chapters, the authors highlight the importance of storing electrical energy in the context of sustainable development in "Smart Grids". They discuss the variety of services that storing electrical energy can provide and support.
Methodological tools are provided following a generic approach based on artificial intelligence, among others. They are presented throughout the book and discussed alongside concrete case studies to provide practical examples of their possible applications.
