Seasonal Energy Storage in a Renewable Energy System

  title={Seasonal Energy Storage in a Renewable Energy System},
  author={Alvin O. Converse},
  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
Because of a concern that in developing transitional energy systems the endpoint system requirements should be kept in mind, this paper focuses on storage in a renewable energy system that uses no fossil fuels. Based largely on the current seasonal patterns of consumption and wind and solar energy generated, it is estimated that the energy storage capacity that would be required to supply the electrical energy for the United States for a year given that the source of the electricity is from… CONTINUE READING
