Connecting Energy Storage Guidance

Energy storage technology allows the capture of generated energy when it is supplemental to needs, so that it can be stored and released at times when it is needed, for example, at times of peak demand. It provides the ability to instantaneously balance power supply and demand and can support power quality management by controlling voltage and frequency when required under emergency conditions.

The use of advanced energy storage technology is seen as the key to increasing flexibility in the distribution system.
