Effects of grid-scale electricity storage on system carbon dioxide emissions as power systems decarbonize

Michael Craig

Carnegie Mellon University

Michael Craig is a PhD candidate in the Engineering and Public Policy department at Carnegie Mellon University. His research focuses on grid-scale power system modeling, environmental regulation of the electric power system, and low-carbon technologies. He received an M.S. in Technology and Policy from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Washington University in St. Louis.


Grid-scale electricity storage (hereafter “storage”) could be a key technology for deeply decarbonizing the electric power system.1,2 However, the net effect of storage on system CO2 emissions largely depends on which... [ view full abstract ]
