Eric Geddes Lecture: Is Electricity Storage in Alberta’s Future?
Thursday, May 3, 2018
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
There has been a renewed interest in electricity storage technologies as renewable energy prices decline and additional variability is added to the grid. Power storage offers a host of other potential benefits to the electricity system ranging from improved resiliency, to reducing peak costs, to easing transmission congestion. While there is much talk about power storage, it remains marginal in Alberta.
