    4. A New Evaluation Paradigm for Flexible Resources

      A New Evaluation Paradigm for Flexible Resources

      Important policy guidance was issued late last year that could impact the country’s investor-owned utilities, and it largely flew under the radar. The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC), the organizing and policy setting association for the country’s public utility commissions, issued a resolution document that sets the stage for what represents prudent assessment of energy storage and flexible resources. In the resolution, NARUC weighed in on the unique attributes of energy storage, stating that it represents a “fundamentally a different class of resource.” Accordingly, NARUC argued, utilities should develop “new modeling tools and new planning frameworks that allow for a more complete evaluation of flexible resources, such as energy storage."

      Miramar Microgrid to Demonstrate Reliable Power from Landfill Gases

      The microgrid at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar took another big step this week with an expansion that will demonstrate landfill gas as a reliable fuel for an islanded microgrid. This microgrid is considered one of the most sophisticated under development with five distributed energy resources, including solar, energy storage, landfill gas, diesel and natural gas plant, and EV charging. The first phase of the demonstration project paired solar and fossil fuels. Its second phase, announced this week, will demonstrate the interplay between landfill gas and energy storage.

      Distributed Residential Solar+Storage Takes a Seat at the Adult Table

      Sunrun has won a bid for 20 MW to participate in ISO New England’s 2022-2023 Forward Capacity Market. The bid means that Sunrun will be required to offer to the broader power grid 20 MW of power, 24 hours a day for the single year period. The company will be paid $3.80/kW/month, or $76,000 for the year. Sunrun notes that the capacity will be made possible by its Brightbox energy storage product line. Currently, this product is an LG Chem RESU. LG’s 48-volt battery comes with 3.3, 6.5 and 9.8 kilowatt-hour (kWh) ratings, and its 400-volt batteries offer 7.0 and 9.8 kWh ratings. Both AC- and DC-coupled versions are available. Sunrun noted they would need about 5,000 New England customers to meet the requirement.

      EV Battery Systems Able to Kick-Start Large Power Plants

      Transmission system operator TenneT and Daimler subsidiary Mercedes-Benz Energy have joined forces in a development partnership to see whether EV batteries could stabilize large grids. The result: Automobile battery storage systems can indeed make a significant contribution to grid stabilization and system reconstruction. The researchers have shown that automobile battery storage systems “can help to compensate for the loss of conventional energy generation,” should the electrical grid fail for some reason. By kick-starting the energy grid with the additional stationary energy storage, fluctuations can be dampened and frequency deviations covered.

      Battery-Backed Solar Breaks Into Grid Long Seen Off Limits

      Solar is breaking into a power market that’s long been the domain of big, conventional generators. A key reason: batteries. New England just approved 145 megawatts of solar systems to provide capacity to the local grid that are paired with batteries that store electricity to use after sundown. It’s the first time sunshine has been a significant participant in ISO New England Inc.’s annual forward capacity auction.

      Massachusetts Opens Revenue Stream to Advance Solar-Plus-Storage

      The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU) issued two orders on Friday, to specify net metering for solar-plus-storage facilities and the capacity ownership rights of such projects. DOER worked with the state Attorney General's office on the DPU docket to help utilities and developers compromise on how to deploy more energy storage without placing an undue burden on taxpayers. For developers, capacity rights ownership to dispatch a generator or storage resource is fundamental to adding more storage and distributed renewables onto the grid. Despite the launch of the main state program for commercial energy storage, Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target, last fall, projects were viewed as less viable without developer access to a new revenue stream in the ISO-New England capacity market, DOER staff said.

      The Smarts Inside the Storage: Software and Analytics Can Drive Economic Value

      Over the past few years, strides in material science, applied chemistry, manufacturing and logistics have caused energy storage system costs to drop significantly. However, as the industry matures, and “early adopters” give way to the “early majority”, the economic fine-tuning required to make storage projects as successful in the field as they seem on paper determines the fate of storage projects before they even leave the planning stage. Storage developers that are still in business do not just start pouring foundations and dispatching cranes on a whim. Every project opportunity is compared to a collection of possible project sizes and scenarios.
