Energy Storage
Energy storage refers to technologies capable of storing electricity generated at one time for later use. These technologies can store energy in a variety of forms including as electrical, mechanical, electrochemical or thermal energy. Storage is an important resource that can provide system flexibility and better align the supply of variable renewable energy with demand by shifting the timing of energy supply and demand.

To foster sustainable, low-emission development, many countries are establishing ambitious renewable energy targets for their electricity supply. Because solar and wind tend to be more variable and uncertain than conventional sources, meeting these targets will involve changes to power system planning and operations. Grid integration is the practice of developing efficient ways to deliver variable renewable energy (VRE) to the grid. Good integration methods maximize the cost effectiveness of incorporating VRE into the power system while maintaining or increasing system stability and reliability.

Wind and solar are inherently more variable and uncertain than the traditional dispatchable thermal and hydro generators that have historically provided a majority of grid-supplied electricity. The unique characteristics of variable renewable energy (VRE) resources have resulted in many misperceptions regarding their contribution to a low-cost and reliable power grid.
