"Utility-Scale Battery Energy Storage – A Technologically Proven, Cost Competitive Solution That Can Solve Multiple Grid Problems"
Charles W. Vaughan
Vice President, Business Development -
U.S. & Canada, AES Energy Storage
Utilities and grid operators have begun to realize that battery energy storage is a technologically proven, scalable, and cost competitive solution to multiple problems that they face within their networks. This is the result of three key factors that this presentation will address: #1 - Innovative technological advances in system architectures and components; #2 - Recent system cost reductions; and #3 - A significant installed base of operating projects with multiple operating years meeting or exceeding operational expectations, resulting in the technology being perceived as proven. This presentation will also discuss some examples of various grid problems and how battery energy storage can be a solution.
