Multi-energY storage-Social, TechnO-economic, Regulatory and Environmental assessment under uncertainty (MY-STORE)

This project is led by the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Manchester and aims to strategically supplement the current research and bring a new perspective by providing much broader context, understanding and responses to the wide-scale deployment of energy storage. Tyndall Manchester will be involved in exploring socio-economic and environmental aspects, including public perceptions to different technologies.

Project Objectives

The vision is to develop a comprehensive framework, supported by innovative techno-economic modelling techniques capable to deal with different types of operational and planning uncertainties as well as network constraints, aimed at fostering sustainable business cases for different types of energy storage. Our analyses will assess how individual energy storage devices or aggregated portfolios of devices connected to different network levels can provide multiple simultaneous steady-state, dynamic services and power quality services and assess the relevant impact and value arising from these services for different market parties. We will consider explicitly multi-energy forms of storage, and in particular different types of electrical energy storage and thermal energy storage technologies, as well as innovative technologies such as power-to-gas.

Tyndall Manchester Work Packages

Tyndall Manchester is leading work package 3 - Wider impacts: environmental analysis, social acceptance and multi criteria assessment.  The following tasks are included in this work package:-

  • T3.1. Life cycle assessment of multiple electrical and thermal storage options
  • T3.2. Social acceptance of electrical and thermal storage options
  • T3.3. Metrics selection and use of multi-criteria assessment of storage options
