The Role of Battery Energy Storage Systems in Hybrid Microgrids

Oct. 13, 2023
Hybrid microgrids have emerged as a game-changer in the world of DERs and renewable energy integration. BESSs play a key role in ensuring high levels of renewable contribution are delivered whilst maintaining the system´s stability and efficiency.

BESS within hybrid microgrids ensures storage of excess energy from periods of low demand, enables dispatch during higher demand intervals, and provides resilient power supply despite renewable sources' intermittency. Furthermore, it balances varied energy source outputs to meet demand, aids in peak shaving and cost reduction, and regulates frequency and voltage. 

This whitepaper delves into BESS's crucial role within hybrid microgrids, its core components and functions, its operation modes, and how it seamlessly intertwines with traditional generators to revolutionize the energy landscape.
