What Are Ancillary Services and Why Do Power Grids Need Them?

What Are Ancillary Services and Why Do Power Grids Need Them?

Modern power grids are extremely complex systems, balancing energy generation and consumption in real time. Grid operators must manage a varied mix of power generation technologies to meet a constantly shifting demand, and with the rise of small-scale renewable sources and energy storage the complexity of power […]

How Energy Storage and DSM Can Help Decarbonize the Grid

How Energy Storage and DSM Can Help Decarbonize the Grid

The UK has a very ambitious climate change goal: an 80% reduction of CO2 emissions by the year 2050. In addition, even without a decarbonisation target, two-thirds of the power plants currently used will reach the end of their service life by 2030, creating demand for new […]

How Green Technologies Will Increase Demand on the Power Grid

How Green Technologies Will Increase Demand on the Power Grid

As energy efficient and environmentally friendly technologies capture a larger market, the obvious conclusion seems to be that they will decrease power grid demand. However, according to a report on smart power published by the National Infrastructure Commission, emerging technologies will actually raise peak demand. Heating and […]

How Renewable Generation Makes Energy Storage More Valuable?

How Renewable Generation Makes Energy Storage More Valuable?

Energy storage is promising from the technological standpoint, but is still limited from reaching a wider market due to its high upfront cost: the most affordable storage systems available at the moment allow energy to be stored and retrieved for around $0.10/kWh/cycle. Since this value is added […]

Residential, Commercial and Industrial DSM: How Does It Change?

Residential, Commercial and Industrial DSM: How Does It Change?

The basic operating principle of demand-side management (DSM) is the same regardless of the scale at which it is implemented: energy consumption is managed and shifted throughout the day to achieve the lowest total cost of operation, which also provides benefits to the utility company by reducing […]

What is Enhanced Frequency Response and Which Are Its Benefits?

What is Enhanced Frequency Response and Which Are Its Benefits?

In order for a power grid to be a reliable source of energy, it must provide a stable voltage and frequency output. Significant deviations in either variable can have negative effects on power grid operation, potentially damaging equipment used by customers. Frequency stability has traditionally been achieved […]

Advantages of Energy Storage at the Point of Consumption

Advantages of Energy Storage at the Point of Consumption

With the rise of variable renewable energy (VRE) sources, such as solar PV arrays and wind turbines, utility companies have an ever-increasing need for energy storage to balance supply and demand. The growth of VREs is not stopping anytime soon: according to Goldman Sachs, the global market […]

Temperature and Humidity Monitoring in a Smart Home

Temperature and Humidity Monitoring in a Smart Home

There are two main variables that determine if a human being will feel comfortable in a specific environment: ambient temperature and the humidity content of the air. We all know that air conditioners and space heaters adjust temperature to levels than enhance human comfort, but humidity plays […]
