Energy storage systems are considered as a solution to improve the power quality, dynamic stability, reliability, and controllability, of microgrids in the presence of renewable energy resources (RES). The energy storage can act as an energy buffer to compensate renewable intermittency and load uncertainties. It enhances the stability of the microgrid by providing the virtual inertia for the system. Energy storage systems can also enhance the microgrids' efficiency by managing the power flow and reducing operational loss. They benefit electricity customers by maximizing renewable energy utilization and minimizing electricity bills through optimal energy management. This chapter discusses microgrid challenges, energy storage technologies, and applications of energy storage within a microgrid.
