Abstract

Research has found an extensive potential for utilizing energy storage within the power system sector to improve reliability. This study aims to provide a critical and systematic review of the reliability impacts of energy storage systems in this sector. The systematic literature review (SLR) is based on peer-reviewed papers published between 1996 and early 2018. Firstly, findings reveal that energy storage utilization in power systems is significant in improving system reliability and minimizing costs of transmission upgrades. Secondly, introduction of policies to shift from the use of fossil fuels to that of renewable energy positively affects energy storage system development. Thirdly, North America is an early pioneer of power system reliability and energy storage system studies. However, Asia has recently taken over the role, with China being the main driver. Research gaps within this field are also identified. This review can serve as basis for scholars in advancing the theoretical understanding of the reliability impacts of energy storage systems and in addressing the gaps within this field.
