As more and more renewable energy is added to the electric power transmission grid, the challenges of meeting seasonal gaps and managing increased volatility become more pronounced.

Thus the need for grid-scale (large-scale "in front of the meter") energy storage.

How can renewable generation sources and grid-scale energy (read more...)

Pumped-storage hydropower enables greater integration of variable renewables (e.g., wind and solar) into the transmission grid by using excess electricity and being ready to produce power during low wind and solar generation periods. Working together, renewable generation technologies can increase electricity production from wind and solar and, at (read more...)
