This report discusses one aspect of energy storage in microgrids. The report specifically addresses the CERTS Microgrid, but the concepts are equally applicable to other microgrid configurations. This report discusses selection of energy storage technology as well as sizing energy storage. These two topics are dealt with in terms of what is commercially viable in 2008. It is understood that, as other technologies advance through the commercialization process, the findings in this report will require revisiting.
