Progress in Energy Storage Technologies and Methods for Renewable Energy Systems Application


This paper provides a comprehensive review of the research progress, current state-ofthe-art, and future research directions of energy storage systems. With the widespread adoption of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power, the discourse around energy storage is primarily focused on three main aspects: battery storage technology, electricity-to-gas technology for increasing renewable energy consumption, and optimal configuration technology. The paper employs a visualization tool (CiteSpace) to analyze the existing works of literature and conducts an in-depth examination of the energy storage research hotspots in areas such as electrochemical energy storage, hydrogen storage, and optimal system configuration. It presents a detailed overview of common energy storage models and configuration methods. Based on the reviewed articles, the future development of energy storage will be more oriented toward the study of power characteristics and frequency characteristics, with more focus on the stability effects brought by transient shocks. This review article compiles and assesses various energy storage technologies for reference and future research.
