      New Business Models in Action: Storage Value Growing Rapidly

      One of the most exciting facets of the energy storage industry is the new and innovative business models that are shaking up the century-old utility landscape. From assets that can perform like generation, infrastructure, or load – independently, or even all at once – to the emergence of virtual power plants and aggregated asset business models, the energy storage industry is as dynamic as the technologies that power it.

    4. Energy Storage: Falling Costs, Major Gains

      Energy Storage: Falling Costs, Major Gains

      As published in EI New Energy - Vol.6, No:7, Feb. 16, 2017

      As the energy transition charges forward, one technology holds the keys to both the rise of renewable power and the evolution of auto transport: Batteries and other energy storage technologies, assuming they continue to improve, will allow intermittent solar and wind to keep gaining market share while accelerating the shift away from oil-based transport. But can energy storage make economic sense, or will it only add to costs? Matt Roberts, executive director of the Energy Storage Association in Washington, tells EI New Energy that US energy storage costs have fallen “very substantially” in recent years and are “well where they need to be.” As a result of the economic gains and technological advances, energy storage is gaining serious attention from a far-reaching cast of characters including automaker Tesla, the Pentagon, French oil major Total, and President Donald Trump’s administration.

      Update on Energy Storage in the USA

      What is the state of play for energy storage right now? The energy storage industry is growing leaps and bounds, and opportunities for energy storage deployment are quickly opening across the country and around the world. Today, in the United States, we seem to be revising our projection estimates each quarter, anticipating even more deployments as markets and regulations are recognizing the value of energy storage systems. According to the US Energy Storage Monitor, deployment grew by more than 256 percent in 2015, and 2016 is on pace to be another record setting year in the U.S. alone. Markets across the globe are adopting cost-effective, reliable energy storage as well, with more than 2 gigawatts (GW) of new systems announced this year.

      ESA Applauds FERC Initiative on Pathways to Accelerate Multiple-Use Storage Deployment

      Washington, D.C. – October 3, 2016 – The Energy Storage Association commends the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) decision to host a Technical Conference on methods to compensate energy storage systems for the multiple values they provide in wholesale markets. While FERC has previously ruled that energy storage can participate in competitive generator markets and that storage can receive cost-based recovery as a transmission asset, there is not currently a mechanism for storage to maximize grid flexibility by undertaking both functions simultaneously. On Friday, FERC opened Docket No. AD16-25 on Utilization in the Organized Markets of Electric Storage Resources as Transmission Assets Compensated Through Transmission Rates, for Grid Support Services Compensate in Other Ways, and for Multiple Services. The Technical Conference, scheduled for November 9, is an opportunity to accelerate the adoption of market rules that reward performance and provide remuneration for the multiple values that advanced energy storage systems deliver.
