This Is ‘Game Changing’ for Behind-the-Meter Energy Storage https://t.co/4xYSTLd7Rr

Distributed Energy Resource (DER) combinations : modeling a standalone storage project, pairing storage with solar PV, or retrofitting storage onto a meter that already has PV Storage system hardware : the electrical characteristics of the battery and inverter, such as kW power, kWh energy capacity, max depth of discharge, and charge/discharge efficiency Software control strategies : the value stream(s) the software is targeting: “peak-demand shaving,” “Time-of-use (TOU) arbitrage,” or “self-consumption” Software controls restrictions : constraints on how the controls software operates, such as requiring the battery to charge from PV or preventing battery exports to the grid Customer load profile : the amount of power a customer uses at different times throughout the day and year Utility rate assumptions : demand charges, TOU price differentials, rate switch scenarios, and...
