Industrial survey report for NAATBatt on the optimal use of DES technology and principal barriers.
The purpose of this project was to survey electric utilities, storage vendors and other stakeholders of the electricity grid concerning their views about the optimal use of DES technology and the principal barriers that prevent widespread deployment of that technology on the grid today. It is intended that that data provided by this report be used to design a program of related and coordinated DES demonstration projects that can most effectively address the issues identified in this report.
In order to achieve these objectives, DNV GL recommended and executed the following process and methodology:
Identify DES applications that are most likely to provide the greatest value
Design survey questions and review the whole methodology with EPRI
Survey utilities and other stakeholders with a follow-up based on their feedback
Analyze the Survey Results and review them with the NAATBatt Advisory Team
Establish a subset of viable projects from the above survey and the Advisory Team comments
Design a method for utilities to share deployment information
