In a future power systems with additional wind power capacity there will be an increased need for large scale power management as well as reliable balancing and reserve capabilities. Different technologies for large scale electricity storage provide solutions to the different challenges arising with high wind power penetration. This paper presents a review of the electricity storage technologies relevant for large power systems. The paper also presents an estimation of the economic feasibility of electricity storage using the west Danish power market area as a case.
