Use of Energy Storage Systems as a Substitute to Fossil Fuel Power Plants
Use of Energy Storage Systems as a Substitute to Fossil Fuel Power PlantsESSs, if combined with either traditional energy or innovative clean energy production sources, can partially or totally substitute for traditional technologies according to studies and reports from respected public-funded or private research international institutions (see the reference section of this chapter).The power plants that are connected to the electricity grid must provide basically three types of power services. Base-load power is the power that is always requested by the loads connected to the grid, and is normally around 30–40% of the highest power draw from the grid during a day. Coal-fired, nuclear, hydroelectric…
