Scientific Seminar “Integration of energy storage in electricity markets”

Speaker: Dr. Hrvoje Pandžić (University of Zagreb, Croatia)

When: December, 4 at 12.00 (noon)-1.30 p.m.

 Where: MR-423 (TPOC-3)

Abstract. Distributed transmission–scale energy storage is becoming economically feasible due to the growing share of renewable generation and cost reduction of specific storage technologies, primarily batteries. This talk will focus on integration of large-scale battery energy storage systems in power systems. Both the perspectives of an independent investor and transmission system operator battery investment models will be presented. Participation of energy storage in energy and reserve markets will considered and analyzed. Furthermore, regulatory frameworks in Europe for participation of energy storage in electricity markets will be discussed and examined.
