Scott Institute paper quantify economic goal for energy storage

In a paper in Energy Policy, Scott Institute researchers quantify how cheap energy storage must be in order for it to be economical to use devices such as batteries and compressed-air-energy-storage (CAES) at remote wind farms.  "By adding energy storage such as batteries or CAES, the farm could store electricity when transmission is constrained, and sell it later when transmission frees up," said Julian Lamy, a Ph.D. candidate in the Engineering and Public Policy (EPP) Department who co-authored the paper with EPP faculty members Inês Azevedo and Paulina Jaramillo.
