    Abstract

    The purpose of energy storage technologies is to ultimately increase the efficiency of renewable energy generation methods and systems and decrease the global CO₂ emissions to tackle the Sri Lanka government’s sustainability targets. This research aims to provide a summary of energy storage and to determine the feasibility and optimal battery storage technology for a 3-bedroom house when integrated with renewable generation source such as solar PV. This research was carried out by using a renewable energy system analysis tool called HOMER pro, solar PV were modelled and simulated with each type of battery, lithium ion and lead-acid batteries, in grid-connected mode. To get a better understanding of how battery storage could be utilized, system was simulated in Matara, located at the south coast of Sri Lanka.
