Title: Power couples: The synergy value of battery-generator hybrids

Abstract

Battery hybrids - a battery system paired operationally with a generation system - can often provide more value than the individual systems alone. We identify and describe eight value streams that battery hybrids can provide. Additionally, we identify the trends of increasing renewable energy, demand for resilience, need for flexibility, and the increasing economics of hybrid systems of standalone diesel generation as supporting increased battery hybridization in the future.
