Abstract: As reliance on solar and wind energy resources grows, additional technologies will be needed to ensure that energy demand is met reliably. Options include energy storage, backup generation, demand-side management, and transmission expansion. I will describe my recent research that identifies strategies to improve these approaches, including efforts to evaluate energy storage technologies and elucidate the improvement of lithium-ion batteries.
