Realizing the Full Economic Potential of Utility Scale Storage

Tuesday, September 25
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Storage Central: Booth 3386

Profitable application of energy storage for developers and utilities can be achieved right now, but finding the opportunities requires optimizing physical operations of storage to the dynamics of market prices. Storage economics can prove profitable in today’s power markets through creative utilization of batteries to serve as both the physical response to intermittent renewable generation, absorbing congestion manifest as price spikes, furnishing ancillary services, and providing system reliability. Understanding how to realize the value of storage will be addressed through project examples illustrating the economic potential through optimal configurations and system operations to comport with market dynamics and ISO rules. This presentation will present four case studies for unlocking the full value of battery storage by addressing the following:
