The Committee’s work will enable a more reliable and efficient supply of electrical energy.
The proportion of renewable energy is likely to increase in all major electricity markets, however large-scale incorporation of renewable energy into existing electricity grids remains complex. As successful RE integration depends on Electrical Energy Storage, small and big centralized and decentralized EES systems will become essential to meet growing global energy needs.
EES systems will also become a crucial element of Smart Grids. With them utilities will be able to produce more energy and store it for later consumption. Utilities will also be able to maintain a reliable energy supply by controlling fluctuations in energy demand and support users during network failures. Finally, EES will allow utilities to adjust power quality, frequency and voltage. Overall EES will make energy supply more efficient.
Up until now there is no organization that covers the standardization of entire EES systems. The new IEC Technical Committee: TC120 EES (Electrical Energy Storage) Systems will oversee the development of International Standards that address all different EES technologies in a systems approach.
The new IEC TC120 EES (Electrical Energy Storage) Systems, will help accelerate the integration of renewable energy into existing grids and enable a more reliable and efficient supply of electrical energy.
The Committee will apply use cases and develop architectures and roadmaps to support industry in building affordable and reliable EES systems that can be incorporated into existing grids anywhere in the world. The Technical Committee will also address aspects such as safety and environmental compatibility.
This will help countries to access practical technologies to integrate more RE into their electricity grids and stimulate smart electrification.
