okay thank you for uh this nice videos not even aware of that pretty well
done i'm very pleased to see that the first session of the day
it's about energy no energy is one of the fundamental team for modern society and it's
one of the main challenges for the next uh fifty years for the whole mankind
so what i'm going to talk about is about the user java disadvantage is stored into the margaret's
why this is one of the hot topics all that nobody's research and industrial
technological transfer what especially because the context is the following this up
i charge which is showing the appetite of the uh the models aside in
terms of energy the size of this part chart is proportional to the
primary energy consumption it's that you don't use asian of uh uh at the global level but you
can see i was actually chew elements the first one is the growth of this by choice
the second fundamental element is that the green part of this by chart which
are also to the to the uh energy conversion from renewable sees
growing in this going for the first time in the last decades which
are the consequences of this growth all the consequence is that
you're inserting into energy systems in power systems a
lot of uncertainties so typically the challenge
in our complex or grade used to keep the system in stable operating condition
especially on the left of this crap you see injections of uncertainties
and the more integrated the nobles them or uncertainties you insert in your system
that needs some balancing action which are essentially the control actions that you
are inserting your system now the but i think actions typically um
providing the power systems at being given by hydropower plants gas part
probably power plants or other kinds of standard power plants
the potential used to use these are the storage and that's what we're interested to talk with so
the fact is that the more integrity your balls the more you need balancing systems
and the question is what kind of devices we can imagine for the
future smart ways to keep the system balance of the building
now especially if there are chew the interesting aspect for interesting i've aspect as it to you
uh usage of this with storage the first one is that you wanted to dispatch locally
with the possible local problem at distribution level not to the box system that
second element is to reduce the usage of stand there that a balancing systems typically provided by
a gas fired power plants for instance and the third objective is that you wanted
to satisfy also local object it's how you typically sold this kind of problems
but you have is that you have a sector of uh uh by consumers
for instance buildings which are also producing power for instance viable slides or via wind turbines for
you want to that these aggregate that a thorough jenny those sites of of prose humorous
nice to be fully controllable or fully these possible if i if you let me use this language there
in this case we wanted to use the service storage is the these big battery that you see connected to these local system
so essentially habit shoes fan still problem you wanted to solve the problem at day ahead
level so wanted to compensate for the uncertainties that you know twenty four hours before
and then when it comes in operation you want us all the uncertain let's say all the uh the
problems of the rising up at the level of up seconds minutes or hours into the operation
now is it these technically and economically feasible and try to convince you that yes is possible
uh this is one of experimental infrastructure we have on campus is in the form of a big battery
is up one mega what battery which is is already into the electricity in the in the region what the the trees the buildings
and this is what ah an example hopkins so in that top graph you see uh
so on which is a market brady what if backspaces the
uncertainties associated to the pros some chance of a subset
of building up the path you see that in the middle of the day there is a lot of answer
i mean the button figure you see that we're able to dispatch maybe to control
they start trajectory energy obvious at the buildings is actually zero uncertainties and
the services provided by the these kind of battery the question is
i'm trying i can because i hope that the committee that is technically feasible is it economically feasible
so this graph showing you uneconomical assessment are transferring
the dispatch from sets was a power plants
down to distributed energy storage systems you can see that the green curve which is the cost of these
uh in this with energy source just permit the the standard provisional ancillary services like balancing with that
standard gas fired power plants is crossing the blue and red curves which is this real storage after
ten years twelve years which means that after these amount of peer period of time
using energy sources me the formal that's okay because thirties economically more viable
additionally if you look at what this next slide please oops
ah interesting
okay well the next slide was uh a graph that was coming from a
study published in nature yeah thank you very much um last year
which is showing the trend of the cost of perk about our energy source system we are at
the level of well four hundred five hundred dollars per kilowatt hour and is going down
journalism showing you before is done with the current cost was energy storage systems
in fact there is and these crappy showing that the potential is even more important in the next five to ten years
