    New York Regulators Assess Potential for Storage to Replace Peaking Units in the State

    New York's Department of Public Services on Monday issued two reports on energy storage development in the state — a unit-by-unit study of replacing or repowering peaking units in the state and a review of a DER Data Platform pilot.
    At least 275 MW of peaking units, or about 6% of the total rated capacity of New York's peaking fleet, were identified as potential candidates for replacement with six‐hour energy storage sized to the maximum 2013 output of each peaking unit, according to study. This number increases to over 500 MW when using eight‐hour duration storage.
