For peak shaving, Distributed Energy Storage (DES) can be more effective because it does not require consumer involvement. Simply deploying battery storage within communities and at substations can achieve even better effects as changing consumer behavior, while giving utilities tighter resource control. Utilities can leverage storage to shift load and generation patterns, making better use of grid assets, boosting grid reliability, and cutting carbon emissions - all without investing in modifying consumer behaviour.
