    4. Energy Optimized: Wärtsilä Energy’s White Paper on Greensmith Technology

      Energy Optimized: Wärtsilä Energy’s White Paper on Greensmith Technology

      Today’s energy landscape is changing. There is a global energy transition underway in which renewable energy sources, led by wind and solar power, will ultimately replace legacy thermal generation. Falling supply costs, coupled with technology innovations in energy storage, software, and automation, are facilitating this change. This sponsored white paper explores:

      1. The diverse challenges facing electric grids today
      2. Optimization of energy generation
      3. Smart algorithms and the modular 'rules-based engine'

    5. Enabling Versatility: Allowing Hybrid Resources to Deliver Their Full Value to Customers

      Enabling Versatility: Allowing Hybrid Resources to Deliver Their Full Value to Customers

      Hybrid resources are growing dramatically. Energy storage-paired generators offer enhanced capabilities and can respond to economic signals differently than traditional generator resources. Yet, many grid planning rules overstate the cost of interconnecting hybrid resources, and operating rules unduly limit the flexibility and other services that these resources can provide. Industry practices, market rules, and regulations need to be updated to remove barriers to entry and allow these resources to offer their full value to the power system, which will enhance market competition and ensure just and reasonable rates.

    6. Implications of Rate Design for the Customer-Economics of Behind-the-Meter Storage

      Implications of Rate Design for the Customer-Economics of Behind-the-Meter Storage

      This work provides insights for the two main sources of bill savings for residential and commercial customers – demand charge reductions and arbitrage of energy charges – considering a range of customer profiles and retail rate designs. Storage can reduce monthly demand charges, which are dependent on the customer’s billing demand in kW rather than the amount of energy they consume in kWh, by charging during times of low energy consumption and discharging during peak consumption hours, thereby reducing peak power consumption from the grid. Storage can also reduce electricity bills by charging the storage during low-priced hours and discharging during high-priced hours, taking advantage of price-differentials of time-varying rates. This study considers a variety of demand charge designs and rates that allow for energy arbitrage.

    8. Capacity Value of Energy Storage in PJM

      Capacity Value of Energy Storage in PJM

      Astrapé Consulting performed a capacity valuation of energy-limited resources (ELRs) using the Strategic Energy and Risk Valuation Model (SERVM) for the PJM Interconnection, L.L.C. The intent of this analysis was to determine the duration requirements for ELRs based on their ability to provide the same reliability benefits as conventional fully-dispatchable resources.

    13. Energy Storage Incentive Programs

      Energy Storage Incentive Programs

      Energy storage is an increasingly cost-effective solution for electricity customers in a growing number of markets across the country, and this trend is expected to carry on as prices continue to fall. Yet regulatory frameworks and market rules in many parts of the country prevent customers from being able to provide or monetize the value their energy storage system can offer, impacting project investment decisions. Recent energy storage cost-benefit studies developed for Massachusetts, New York, and Nevada have revealed the potential value of energy storage systems to customers, utilities, and the electric system. Incentive programs can serve as a bridge on the path towards realizing this value, jumpstarting a state’s storage market while the necessary reforms are finalized to enable customers to secure financial compensation for the value their storage systems provide. The benefits in soft cost reduction of incentivizing the near-term deployment of megawatts can far exceed the costs of an incentive program.
