Modernizing the electric system will help the nation meet the challenge of handling projected energy needs—including addressing climate change by integrating more energy from renewable sources and enhancing efficiency from non-renewable energy processes. Advances to the electric grid must maintain a robust and resilient electricity delivery system, and energy storage can play a significant role in meeting these challenges by improving the operating capabilities of the grid, lowering cost and ensuring high reliability, as well as deferring and reducing infrastructure investments. Finally, energy storage can be instrumental for emergency preparedness because of its ability to provide backup power as well as grid stabilization services.

There are four challenges related to the widespread deployment of energy storage: cost competitive energy storage technologies (including manufacturing and grid integration), validated reliability & safety, equitable regulatory environment, and industry acceptance. Issues that are being explored in this paper focus on reducing system costs through targeted application of science and engineering research and development for new storage concepts, materials, components and systems (including manufacturability and standardization). Developers should consider technical risk mitigation, for controlling the uncertainties at the early stage of deployment so that cost estimates and operational practices can develop based upon well-grounded and fully understood data. Ongoing research and development, from fundamental science of energy storage mechanisms to the early stage development of platform technologies should also be considered in support of these challenges. Industrial standards for grid storage are in their infancy. Industry acceptance could also gain ground when we reduce the uncertainty surrounding how storage technology is used, and monetized, at scale. Ultimately, it will be the experience and real-world use of storage that will provide the confidence and desire to expand installed storage.

At this webinar we will discuss about the intermittency and energy storage technology for Indonesia’s Solar Park Future. Energy storage technologies—such as pumped hydro, compressed air energy storage, various types of batteries, flywheels, electrochemical capacitors, etc., provide for multiple applications: energy management, backup power, load level-ing, frequency regulation, voltage support, and grid stabilization. Importantly, not every type of storage is suitable for every type of application, motivating the need for a portfolio strategy for energy storage technology.

The State Electricity Company (Persero) or PLN continues to be committed to rolling out the transformation by encouraging the use of low-carbon energy that is environmentally friendly, especially by utilizing new and renewable energy in the supply of electrical energy. A concrete step to encourage this transformation, PLN has launched a program in 2020, which is packaged in four objective targets, namely Green, Innovative, Customer Focused, and Lean.
