Energy storage sizing for grid compatibility of intermittent renewable resources: A California case study

Alexander J. Headley and David A. Copp

Energy, 2020, vol. 198, issue C

Abstract: High levels of intermittent renewable sources will lead to large swings in demand for other generation resources, increasing the risk of overgeneration. Rooftop solar installations exacerbate the potential issues as well. Energy storage systems can mitigate these problems but need to be properly sized to reach network wide goals.
