Energy storage is becoming more prevalent in the electricity industry as renewable penetration and distributed energy resources continue to increase, as consumer preferences and business models continue to evolve, and as technology costs continue to decline rapidly.
In 2019, the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) developed the Energy Storage Roadmap that sets out the AESO’s plan to facilitate the integration of energy storage technologies into AESO Authoritative Documents and grid & market systems. This will help facilitate market qualification and participation for energy storage as well as enable an efficient and effective connection. The roadmap will also help the AESO in monitoring and control of energy storage facilities when connected to the electricity grid.
As part of the Energy Storage Roadmap, the AESO has identified a number of activities needed to integrate Energy Storage in the shorter and longer term. This presentation will provide an update on the different activities being undertaken along with timelines.
