ESTCP Project of the Year: Battery Energy Storage Systems! Check out the work demonstrating that microgrids combined with large-scale battery energy storage systems can enhance energy security by facilitating integration of more renewable energy and reducing single-point-of-failure vulnerabilities associated with traditional back-up power emergency diesel generators.

Battery Storage in Micro GRIDS is great and growing fast. But it is also being added to the larger GRID in all utilities across the world. Tesla is a leader in this area. They first showed the great progress in Australlia when they added 100 Mega Watts in under 100 days. Since they they have added Mega Watts all over the world. 

    For years Battery Storage has been the Holy Grail in power. It also allows more Renewables to be added to the GRID. They are the lowest price and fastest to build and get producing. The storage is also getting lower cost and longer lasting each year.
