2017 Renewable Energy Sources Integration with Energy Storage Devices (Panel)

2017 Panel: Modern Heuristic Optimization Techniques for Renewable Energy Sources Integration with Energy Storage Devices: Optimization under Uncertainty

Power systems are experiencing a revolution caused by the increase of power generators fed by renewable sources. This trend has been mixing with the concurrent course in power generation practice of preferring distributed and dispersed medium and small power generators. Beyond the great benefits, there are still some significant drawbacks. The intermittency, which characterizes renewable sources, is one of the main concerns. In particular, energy storage systems have been coupled with renewable energy sources to mitigate the impact of the aleatory behavior. This introduces new challenges, as energy storage systems should be optimally managed in accordance with the stochastic profiles and with the intrinsic characteristic of the particular energy storage technology. In this panel, practitioners from industry, regulatory bodies and academia will come together to discuss what is being implemented, best practices and the challenges concerning the optimal management of energy storage systems integrated with renewable energy sources.
