Renewable generation is a cornerstone of the energy transition. As wind and solar increase their penetration into North American energy markets, grid operators are grappling with intermittent supply that may not align with demand. Hybrid systems, specifically solar+storage, offer greater capabilities than solar or wind alone by allowing energy smoothing, firming, and shifting.
While still relatively new, solar+storage plants in North America have been getting bigger, more advanced, and more complex in an effort to maximize project revenue and meet the evolving needs of the grid. This webinar features leading experts within DNV GL and Goldman Sachs Renewable Power that will discuss AC vs DC coupling, hybrid plant services and battery energy storage system (BESS) control, impacts on facility energy production and efficiencies, battery usage and degradation, and some case studies within the California market. The presenters will illustrate how solar+storage plants are a viable solution to inject stability and reliability into the grid while adding a valuable incremental revenue stream—if done right.
