From California to the Caribbean: Sharing Expertise on Developing Energy Storage for Grid Applications in Island Nations

Written by Rocky Mountain Institute

Island nations seek innovative and urgent solutions to accelerate the deployment of clean, sustainable solutions to reduce electricity costs, improve grid reliability, and enhance the resilience of their electricity systems against extreme natural and man-made events. Many small island developing states (SIDS) have already initiated a clean energy transition by tapping into solar, wind, geothermal, hydroelectric, and other renewable energy resources to supply their electricity needs cheaply and reliably. However, energy storage is a vital component remaining to be incorporated into many island electricity grids, as it can support renewable energy integration, deliver frequency regulation services to the grid, and
