      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.

      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.

      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.

      The U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA) supports the efforts of Senators Coons and Moran and Representatives Thompson and Estes to introduce the bipartisan Financing Our Energy Future Act. Including energy storage as an eligible asset for master limited partnerships would allow energy infrastructure providers to build and acquire energy storage technologies at lower cost, accelerating the transition to a more resilient, efficient, sustainable and affordable energy infrastructure. Coupled with the Energy Storage Tax Incentive and Deployment Act (S. 1142 / H.R. 2096), which ESA also endorses, the Financing our Energy Future Act will help establish a long-term tax framework to accelerate storage deployment.
