Title: When Solar+Storage Make Sense

Abstract

An NREL presentation details the benefits and challenges of solar plus storage systems. Benefits can include reduced utility bills, reduced demand charges, and increased resilience, or the ability to meet critical load during grid outages. Challenges can include dispatching and islanding controls, and quantifying the benefits of resilience. Decision support tools, such as NREL's REopt, aid the energy planning process.
