The idea of integrating intermittent sources of energy such as solar and wind with energy storage has several benefits for the electricity grid. The first benefit is that energy storage can help the grid during the periods that grid is facing high peak demand. The second benefit is that using energy storage would help shifting the grid load from peak and busy time to a less demand time. And the third benefit is that using energy storage would help smoothing the variations in power generation fed into the grid by variable and intermittent renewable resources. The third benefit is of particular important because in future more renewable energy sources will be integrated into the electricity grid worldwide. The objective of this paper is to present the results of a study conducted to examine the potential role and potential benefits of energy storage integrated into intermittent sources. Using energy storage will provide an opportunity to create a sustainable power supply, and to make the electricity grid more reliable especially with large proportion of grid-connected renewable sources.
