    New study By Astrapé, Energy Storage Association, and National Resources Defense Council refutes PJM arguments in FERC 841 Order

    A new study released by Astrapé Consulting, funded by the U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA) and National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), concludes that Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) efforts to encourage more energy storage deployment is supported by sound data. The findings, which are specific to the PJM market, show that PJM’s proposal requiring a storage asset to run for 10 continuous hours in order to qualify its full output for the capacity market is unnecessary and unduly restrictive. The Astrapé study concludes that a shorter storage duration requirement correctly reflects its capacity value for the foreseeable future.
