Energy security and efficient utilisation are becoming key issues to more advanced domestic and commercial consumers. Electrical energy storage systems for electrical installations are therefore becoming more prevalent.
This Technical Briefing provides a good introduction for specifiers, designers and installers in the selection of electrical energy storage systems. It covers the principal benefits, the selection of systems, electrical arrangements and key terminology used.
It supports IET's forthcoming Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems. This code will give more in-depth guidance and aims to review the underlying technical, operational and safety issues relating to the application of electrical energy storage systems in buildings and power systems.
