Just How Much Business Can Batteries Take From Gas Peakers?

Batteries emerged as a viable peak power resource so quickly that it’s hard to know what happens next. Regulators in states like California and Arizona have turned to batteries instead of conventional natural-gas plants to provide flexible power for evening peaks. They see this as crucial in containing the major cost driver for utilities, and in developing a cleaner, more efficient grid. The storage industry believes this trend will accelerate quickly. Still, batteries can’t do everything that a gas combustion turbine can do. A rapid transition to a storage-based peak power system could create vulnerabilities if it’s not done right. Little data exists to indicate what will happen if the peaker-to-storage swap becomes more widespread. In the meantime, we can turn to a recent report by Ravi Manghani, GTM Research’s energy storage director. He analyzed run-time data from comb...
