Energy storage systems help us to realize the true benefits of renewables and advanced grid technologies. They mitigate intermittencies and unlock the potential of solar and wind power by storing clean energy as it is created, so that it can be used when it is actually needed.
The emergence of energy storage systems (ESSs), due to production from alternative energies such as wind and solar installations, has driven the need for installation requirements within the NEC for the safe installation of these energy storage systems.
Energy storage has been a hot topic of conversation over the past few years. We’ve heard about futuristic innovations, larger-than-life company leaders like Elon Musk putting his storage company on the map, and states vowing to become energy independent through renewable resource use.
