Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESSs) could contribute to the generation/consumption balance of the grid and could provide advanced functionalities at different grid levels (generation, T&D, end-user and RES integration). In this paper an analysis and comparison of Battery Energy Storage (BES) technologies for grid applications is carried out. The comparison is focused on the most installed technologies in the recent experimental BESS installations. Furthermore, the paper presents a new methodology aimed at selecting the most suitable BES technology for a specific grid application. This methodology defines a priority level for each technical and economical characteristic of the BES technologies. Finally, the proposed methodology is applied for a specific grid application confirming its contribution in the selection of the best-suited technology.
