Fact Sheet: The Role of Storage and Demand Response

A new Greening the Grid fact sheet titled “The Role of Storage and Demand Response” has been published. Storage and demand response provide means to better align wind and solar power supply with electricity demand patterns: storage shifts the timing of supply, and demand response shifts the timing of demand. This fact sheet overviews the benefits, tradeoffs, and analysis challenges associated with employing demand response and storage to increase the penetration of variable renewable energy.
