Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

This paper will discuss the purpose and value of energy storage as a transitional technology towards SmartGrids, as well as its utilization within the future network operational arrangements. The paper will investigate assessment techniques of energy storage at a local, system and global level, with a focus on the ways that energy storage may be valued. The paper will analyse existing techniques that are used to evaluate factors which influence decisions on the value of storage, and indicate areas which require further development in order to enable effective deployment of energy storage on current and future grids.
