9780124095403: Solar Energy Storage

Solar technologies have recently experienced a substantial cost reduction, which increased their penetration and share in the global energy mix. However, key concerns around solar power's inherent variability threaten to de-rail that scale-up. Currently, integration of intermittent solar resources into the grid creates added complication to load management. That forces solar developers to devise strategies to smooth out power delivery at the point of production. One of the most prominent of these strategies is energy storage. Therefore it is increasingly clear to parties on all sides that energy storage will be pivotally important in the drive to boost the integration of variable renewable sources into power infrastructures across the globe. Thoughtfully implemented storage technologies can reduce peak demand, improve day-to-day reliability, provide emergency power in case of interrupted generation, reduce consumer and utility costs by easing load balance challenges, decrease emissions, and increase the amount of distributed and renewable energy that makes it into the grid. While energy storage has long been an area of concern for scientists and engineers, there has been no comprehensive single text covering the storage methods available to solar power producers, which leaves a lamentable gap in the literature core to this important field. Solar Energy Storage, as the first authoritative work on the topic, focuses on energy stores suitable for integration into solar energy systems for delivering electric or thermal power to the end-users, and emphasizes the latest technological developments driving this discipline forward. The book incorporates contributions from an internationally recognized group of top authors from both industry and academia to provide information from underlying scientific fundamentals to practical applications. * Expert contributing authors explain current and emergent storage technologies for solar thermal and photovoltaic applications, highlighting benefits and drawbacks for each storage technology, at large and small scales, and affording readers the opportunity to make informed choices about which would be optimally implemented in specific project scenarios.* Sheds light on the economic status of solar storage facilities from both theoretical and practical sides, including case studies of the particular challenges that solar systems present on remote locations.* Includes information on chemical storage mechanisms such as lithium ion batteries, mechanical storage tactics such as compressed air and other underground stores, pumped hydro, thermal storage, and storage strategies for systems of all sizes, from centralized utilities to distributed generation.

Product Description:

While solar is the fastest-growing energy source in the world, key concerns around solar power's inherent variability threaten to de-rail that scale-up . Currently, integration of intermittent solar resources into the grid creates added complication to load management, leading some utilities to reject it altogether, while other operators may penalize the producers via rate increases or force solar developers to include storage devices on-site to smooth out power delivery at the point of production. However these efforts at mitigation unfold, it is increasingly clear to parties on all sides that energy storage will be pivotally important in the drive to boost the integration of variable renewable sources into power infrastructures across the globe. Thoughtfully implemented storage technologies can reduce peak demand, improve day-to-day reliability, provide emergency power in case of interrupted generation, reduce consumer and utility costs by easing load balance challenges, decrease emissions, and increase the amount of distributed and renewable energy that makes it into the grid. While energy storage has long been an area of concern for scientists and engineers, there has been no comprehensive single text covering the storage methods available to solar power producers, which leaves a lamentable gap in the literature core to this important field. Solar Energy Storage aims to become the authoritative work on the topic, incorporating contributions from an internationally recognized group of top authors from both industry and academia, focused on providing information from underlying scientific fundamentals to practical applications, and emphasizing the latest technological developments driving this discipline forward. * Expert authors explain all current and emergent storage technologies for both solar thermal and photovoltaic applications, shedding light on this pivotal topic* Highlights benefits and drawbacks for each storage technology, affording readers the opportunity to make informed choices about which would be optimally implemented in specific project scenarios* Includes information on chemical storage mechanisms such as lithium ion batteries, mechanical storage tactics such as compressed air and flywheels, thermal storage, and specialized coverage of solar-electric vehicles. * Demonstrates how solar producers can maximize production revenue by implementing storage measures that support steadier supply, and open up new entirely new revenue streams by providing storage as an ancillary service in emerging markets
