Abstract (englisch):
The current energy system is subject to a fundamental transformation:
A system that is oriented towards a constant
energy supply by means of fossil fuels is now expected to
integrate increasing amounts of renewable energy to achieve
overall a more sustainable energy supply. The challenges
arising from this paradigm shift are currently most obvious
in the area of electric power supply. However, it affects all
areas of the energy system, albeit with different results. Within
the energy system, various independent grids fulfill the
function of transporting and spatially distributing energy or
energy carriers, and the demand-oriented supply ensures
that energy demands are met at all times. However, renewable
energy sources generally supply their energy independently
from any specific energy demand. Their contribution
to the overall energy system is expected to increase significantly.
Energy storage technologies are one option for temporal
matching of energy supply and demand. Energy storage
systems have the ability to take up a certain amount of
energy, store it in a storage medium for a suitable period of
time, and r ... mehr
