One solution to ensuring the long-term growth of solar is to deploy solar with energy storage either co-located or as standalone systems. Solar+energy storage provides flexible capacity by both absorbing over-generation midday and discharging it during the evening hours when carbon-free energy is needed.
A paired solar+storage resource has greater capability to provide grid services than standalone solar as well. This allows grid operators to use a clean, carbon-free resource to provide enough capacity to serve their customers during peak demand periods rather than relying on traditional polluting fossil fuel plants.
Using case studies, this white paper by Fluence delves into the economics as well as the technical considerations of solar+storage by addressing:
Configurations types and benefits
Sizing solar+storage projects
Optimising inverter loading ratio
