The underlying question of this research work is whether small, distributed storage devices on the electricity grid can help to lower the average electricity cost and foster the integration of renewable energy sources. This article addresses the question whether it is economically beneficial to install such storage capacity. The article presents two models(More)

—Distributed storage systems at the end consumer level could provide a remarkable load shifting potential that could be used to increase the demand side's flexibility without requiring behavioral changes from the end consumer. This article analyzes the economics of such storage systems with regard to the storage technology applied and the quality of price(More)
The basic question behind this research work is whether distributed storage devices on the electricity grid can lower the average electricity cost, increase the demand-side flexibility and, hence, foster the integration of renewable energy sources. The article presents a mathematical model of a storage system that calculates the economic benefits of(More)
