Cracking the PPA: Renewable Energy Projects and Energy Storage

Colocating energy storage with renewable generation resources seems like a natural partnership to reduce the intermittency of renewable generators. Several projects have been built across the country combining storage with wind or solar projects. While the co-location of such facilities can yield many benefits, there are a number of legal and practical issues that need to be considered when deciding to acquire and co-locate storage facilities (particularly battery projects) with existing or new renewable generation. The primary issue with co-locating a storage project, particularly with an already operating wind or solar project, is considering how the storage “add-on” will affect the renewable development.
