Topics in Energy Storage and Electric System Integration

  • David J. Rose
Part of the Modern Perspectives in Energy book series (MPIE)


Most of these topics connect, via electric power systems. Electric power is expected to increase its already large share of total energy, from both end use and generation perspectives. Besides being clean at the point of use, its precise controllability and adaptability match it to the demands for our increasingly precise technological world. Steel made in electric arc furnaces has replaced steel made in open-hearth furnaces; metals surface-treated in gaseous plasmas replace those formerly treated in flames. Electric heat pumps replace oil- or gas-buming furnaces. Increasing urbanization of the world reinforces this trend; electric power is easier to distribute than many other energy forms in already built cities, offering opportunity for cleaner living.
