Grid-Forming technology is viewed as one of the necessary enablers for high penetration of inverter based resources. While it continues to be an area of active research, grid-forming battery energy storage systems are already commercially available and are being used in an number of applications around the world (e.g. US, Australia, and a number of Island applications). This webinar will provide an overview of existing and ongoing projects, focusing on the drivers behind the choice of technology and project performance. The webinar is based on the whitepaper “The Role of Grid Forming Technology to Enable Energy Systems Integration” on which the ESIG High Share of Inverter-Based Resources Task Force is currently working.
