The Energy Storage Revolution Needs an Energy Market Evolution

The Energy Storage Revolution Needs an Energy Market Evolution

There’s a difference between knowing why energy storage is so useful to integrating wind and solar power into the grid, and being able to prove it to a banker. They’re going to want to know all the details in between, such as: Has anyone ever been paid for performing these tasks? If so, how much? And can we get that price in a 10-year contract? To be sure, we’ve seen hundreds of megawatts of energy storage bankrolled through utility contracts, as in California, or to serve once-lucrative frequency regulation services, as in the territory of mid-Atlantic grid operator PJM. But the structures aren’t quite there yet for energy storage to provide the bankable revenue streams that wind and solar project financial backers need to make deals -- even if the desire for them is peaking . “The reality is that storage hasn’t been widely financed yet, and we’re still several years away...
