2023 IEEE Rising Stars Conference team presents

THE RED DWARF STARS SERIES

SRP Perspectives on Utility Scale Energy Storage Technologies

Chico Hunter

 

Red Dwarf stars are the smallest and emerging in the universe.  The Red Dwarf events represent the formation and growth of our IEEE Rising Stars Conference. The 2023 IEEE Rising Stars Conference team will be hosting a series of monthly events to show you a glimpse of what we are preparing for the conference. We'll be sharing some professional development and technical content throughout this series, as well as some of the networking experience.

Join us on a series of informative and engaging events as we prepare for our large stage at the 2023 IEEE Rising Stars Conference, January 3-5, in Las Vegas at the Tropicana Hotel.

Chico Hunter, Manager of SRP Research and Development, Presentation Description:

Today the electric sector has begun deploying utility scale li-ion batteries for energy at short durations, typically 4 hours or less, to help integrate variable renewable energy resources like wind and solar into the grid. Chico Hunter from SRP’s Innovation and Development department will cover this topic and share information on a variety of emerging non-battery storage technologies they are investigating for longer duration storage, in the 8-12 hour range, that might compete with li-ion batteries in the coming years.
