White Paper on Benefits of Mass Deployment of Distributed Energy Storage (DES)

distributed energy storage benefits

The National Alliance for Advanced Technology Batteries (NAATBatt) last week issued a white paper on “the benefits that would result from widespread deployment of distributed energy storage (DES) systems.” A copy of this white paper was also provided to U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu in April.

The white paper, “Distributed Energy Storage: Serving National Interests,” is 47 pages long. Some of the benefits detailed in the paper relate to system regulation, integration of distributed renewable power generation, mitigation of the impact of power disruptions, transmission and distribution project deferral, and the manufacture of more convenient and less costly electric vehicles.

For more information, check out the white paper, linked above.
