CCEE researchers win paper award from IEEE

“Energy-Storage Modeling: State-of-the-Art and Future Research Directions,” a paper by researchers including Associate Professors Jeremiah Johnson and Anderson de Queiroz, Professor Joseph DeCarolis, and former CCEE student Danny Sodano — was recently awarded The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Power & Energy Society (PES) Prize Paper Award. The paper was originally published in IEEE Transactions on Power Systems in March 2022.

IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) is the leading provider of the latest technological developments in the power and energy industry, the formation of key industry standards, and the continuing education of society members, industry, and the general public. The Prize Paper Award recognizes the most outstanding papers among those nominated by each Technical Committee. The authors will be recognized at the PES General Meeting Awards Ceremony in Orlando, Florida, in July.

Creating modeling around energy storage can be a challenging task, given its physical characteristics and the range of services that it can provide. The winning paper summarizes capabilities that operational, planning and resource-adequacy models that include energy storage should have and surveys gaps in existing models.
