Delay or Eliminate Costly Transmission and Distribution Upgrades With Energy Storage
Energy storage can be used to delay costly transmission and distribution (T&D) upgrades. T&D deferral is an ideal application for energy storage because a small amount of storage can result in the delay or avoidance of a costly T&D upgrade. Consider the scenario where a distribution circuit is experiencing load growth and next year’s peak is expected to exceed the circuit rating. The distribution company can install a relatively small battery energy storage system to provide additional generation near the loads on peak days and avoid a costly upgrade. Dynapower’s CPS line of energy storage inverters is designed for high reliability and utilization in T&D deferral projects using energy storage.
