Life cycle analysis of a Battery energy storage system

Baiba Melnikova, Dagnija Blumberga


For Latvian government and transmission system operator energy security and independence has been an issue for a period of time, even more when political situation changed, motivating to act faster in order to swich off from BREL system completely. Therefore, three Baltic states have made an agreement on building more stable electricity transmission system within Baltic region and to connect with European transmission systems, building new stations with synchronous compensators and energy storage systems. In order to build a system, that allows to include more energy from renewable resources and secure possible disbalances in system, Latvian TSO operator is building a new battery energy storage system. This paper is aimed to look at what are the costs of this battery energy storage system from climate perspective to Latvia and its society in order to gain energy security and possibility to include more energy from renewable resources.
