Engineering Battery Utility into the Grid


The electrical distribution grid is a complex network. With demands for electrical power continually rising, utilities and project developers are focusing on how to stabilize intermittent electrical energy production and demand. The combination of high-energy density and low costs found in advanced battery design can potentially provide storage services to the grid, utilities, and downstream customers by improving power quality, conversion, capacity, and reliability.

Uesaka_ShinichiShinichi Uesaka, General Manager, Energy System Group, muRata

Safety is one of the biggest concerns of ESS due to recent fire accidents. Our battery, FORTELION is very safe and expected life is more than 15 years because its cathode, olivine-type iron phosphate is very stable in nature. The presentation will show results of UL9540A for cell level and module level which is getting more important, calendar life and cycle life of FORTELION.

Techno-Economics of Grid Integration

9:00 Chairperson’s Remarks

Matthias Vetter, PhD, Department Head, Electrical Energy Storage, Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE

9:05 FEATURED PRESENTATION: Energy Storage for the Grid: Optimizing Far Beyond Well-Established Transportation Paradigms

Babinec_SusanSusan Babinec, Program Lead, Stationary Storage, Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science (ACCESS), Argonne National Laboratory

The confluence of lower battery manufacturing costs and the increase of wind and PV power generation has given rise to a new era of energy storage (ES) focused on the grid. In this presentation, we will discuss how techno-economic realities guide the future grid storage solution space, including: shortcomings of EV-focused Li-ion for grid deployment; Argonne’s ML/AI for battery lifecycle evaluations; economics of longer duration storage, including seasonal; and the effect of new chemistries on the entire application suite.

9:35 Aging – Affecting Safety, Reliability, and Performance of Stationary Battery Storage

Vetter_MatthiasMatthias Vetter, PhD, Department Head, Electrical Energy Storage, Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE

In dependence on the application-specific ambient and operating conditions, but also in dependence on the quality of the used lithium-ion battery cells and the system design, aging mechanisms have a significant influence on the safety and reliability, as well as on the performance of the battery storage. Thereby, capacity fade and increase of inner resistance of battery cells, as well as corresponding increase of cooling demand, must be considered. This presentation will provide current results of market-available battery storage gained in the laboratory and the field.

11:20 A Price-Maker/Price-Taker Model for the Operation of Battery Storage Systems in Electricity Markets

Zareipour_HamidHamid Zareipour, PhD, Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering, The University of Calgary

This presentation will discuss a model for stacking multiple value streams by a merchant battery energy storage system in a competitive electricity market. The model considers the concurrent participation of the battery in the energy and ancillary services markets. Particularly, energy arbitrage, frequency regulation, and contingency reserves are considered. The model takes into account the impacts that the actions of the storage might have on market prices.

The prospects for lithium-ion are justifiably receiving major attention. Projected growth rates are impressive and numerous market drivers and trends (vehicle electrification, 5G, wearables, ESS, IoT, the cloud) reinforce the potential for even higher growth. Responding to the challenge, Li-ion technology has been steadily improving even as costs have been decreasing. Requirements for even higher energy are stimulating massive R&D efforts to bring next generation materials to market. The roadmap to 2030 offers many opportunities, but not without major challenges. A panel of experts will discuss forecasts for 2030, providing insights about opportunities, challenges, barriers and key factors shaping the 2030 Roadmap.
