Smart grids bring together a variety of electrical energy sources and use methods of production, distribution and smart metering in order to minimise energy demand, share resources and optimise efficiency.
We are investigating integrated energy storage to allow renewable energy generating plants to behave like conventional power stations.
These technologies not only overcome shortfalls in power but also help to balance inputs and outputs on the grid.
Research topics include:
This work, in collaboration with industry, is helping us to explore a number of advanced technologies that will meet the requirements of future electricity grids and improve the quality of power delivered from renewable energy sources.
