Reinforcing Energy Grid in Developing Countries and role of Energy Storage

Ramesh Pandey


Growing populations coupled with rapid industrial growth is driving increased energy consump-
tion in the developing world. Energy grids in developing countries have historically struggled to
meet requirements and will continue to do so if strategy and pace of grid development is unable
to keep up with increasing demands. As growing populations continue to seek access to energy
sources it is important that these eorts be sustainable not only economically and socially but also
environmentally. This study attempts to review ongoing eorts in some of these countries aimed
at enhancing their renewable source generation capacity, its integration into the national grid and
energy storage capability addition required to support integration and grid reliability.
