DNV KEMA Energy & Sustainability has debuted ES-GRID, which the company says is a new tool to help quantify the value of distributed energy storage on distribution systems.

According to DNV, ES-GRID was developed to serve needs like those of the current California Public Utilities Commission effort, which seeks to establish reliable and detailed economics for energy storage technologies.

DNV KEMA says ES-GRID and its suite of related products conduct systems analysis at the engineering level and can size, customize and evaluate storage in various applications.

"Policymakers and utilities alike need tools customized to individual distribution systems, to simulate actual performance and provide users with the ability to confidently assess when, where, and whether storage is the right choice,” says DNV KEMA’s Richard Fioravanti.
