Solar Energy Grid Integration Systems -- Energy Storage (SEGIS-ES).

  title={Solar Energy Grid Integration Systems -- Energy Storage (SEGIS-ES).},
  author={C. J. Hanley and Dan T. Ton and John D. Boyes and G.H. Peek},
This paper describes the concept for augmenting the SEGIS Program (an industry-led effort to greatly enhance the utility of distributed PV systems) with energy storage in residential and small commercial applications (SEGIS-ES). The goal of SEGIS-ES is to develop electrical energy storage components and systems specifically designed and optimized for grid-tied PV applications. This report describes the scope of the proposed SEGIS-ES Program and why it will be necessary to integrate energy…
