About this book

As energy produced from renewable sources is increasingly integrated into the electricity grid, interest in energy storage technologies for grid stabilisation is growing.Advances in Batteries for Medium and Large-scale Energy Storage reviews advances in battery technologies and applications for medium and large-scale energy storage. Chapters address advances in nickel, sodium and lithium-based batteries. Other chapters review other emerging battery technologies such as metal-air batteries and flow batteries. The final section of Advances in Batteries for Medium and Large-scale Energy Storage discuses design considerations and applications of batteries in remote locations and for grid-scale storage.


Introduction: Economics of batteries for medium and large-scale energy storage
