Fundamentals of Battery Storage, February 23, 2021

Energy storage has become big news and a valuable contributor to the energy sector. Advanced energy storage technologies have matured rapidly in recent years and installations are quickly gaining momentum in states across the country. The interest in energy storage is expanding for number of reasons including: solving the intermittency problem as utilities continue to add renewables to the grid and evolving technology now gives consumers more control of their energy use, which has spawned companies to take advantage of this. Companies across North America continue to pursue market and regulatory changes to integrate more storage.

In 2019, nearly 50 US electric power companies committed to significant carbon reduction goals including Duke Energy, Arizona Public Service (APS) and others. To achieve these goals, power companies and utilities will increasingly rely on energy storage to assuage volatility in wholesale markets as well as support additional renewables on the grid. This conference will provide an overview of regulatory challenges, pricing and policy, and utility case studies. The materials will provide valuable information on a full spectrum of applications for utilities, regulatory agencies, project developers, private investors, and wholesale market participants.

Learning Outcomes

  • Review a U.S. policy update on energy storage and grid modernization across the country
  • Discuss updates energy storage in the ISO/RTO markets
  • Examine regulatory approaches to driving the increase in energy storage
  • Discuss the role of regulators at federal and state levels in promoting energy storage

Session I Overview:

Energy storage systems support several electric utility use cases, including grid support, outage mitigation, capital deferral, and improved services to end users. Energy storage is the ultimate in malleable grid resources, acting as generation, load, and a grid reliability resource. This presents unique planning challenges to utilities and requires significant rethinking of planning processes to capture the full resource value for utilities’ customers and shareholders. This session will explore the stackable benefit streams of storage, and how planning must evolve to appropriately value the system and ratepayer benefits that storage can provide.

Presentations:

Batteries, the New DER Changing the Grid

This session will share updates on some of the current constraints/issues Salt River Project (SRP) is facing. The presentation will also provide updates on what changes SRP has made to its interconnection process to accommodate for batteries, and what the utility is seeing with respect to its battery incentive program.

9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. :: Session II: Regulatory/Legal Perspectives and Market Updates

(includes breaks)


Session II Overview:

The U.S. energy storage market has grown significantly since FERC first allowed non-generator resources to provide ancillary services to the grid. Energy storage resources are now technologically advanced and can participate in markets other than Frequency Regulation.  FERC has agreed and issued Orders that acknowledge the technological advances and recognize the increased role that energy storage should play in the grid markets.  The barriers have been removed for energy storage to provide all market services, including capacity, energy and ancillary services markets operated by RTOs/ISOs.  Many of the states have also recognized the importance of energy storage and have issued regulations that, among other things, mandate procurement targets and are working with grid operators to achieve these targets 

Presentations:

Updates on Energy Storage in the ISO/RTO Markets

How storage is treated by U.S. organized wholesale markets is of critical importance to the future of the sector and how storage can benefit the grid. This session will share how approaches to energy storage market design have varied regionally, and what ISOs & RTOs and FERC have done to enable market participation by energy storage.

John Fernandes, Senior Consultant – Emerging Technologies, Customized Energy Solutions (CES)


Regulatory Approaches to Driving Energy Storage

In competitive regional markets, has issued several orders in recent years that collectively aim to align market structures with the capabilities of energy storage. In this session, Kevin Hernandez with ScottMadden will talk about some of the recent federal orders (FERC 841, 2222) and state policy initiatives including: NY, CA, NJ, MN and their impact on the energy storage market.

Kevin Hernandez, Partner, ScottMadden


Emerging Legal Issues for Energy Storage

Although growth in energy storage technologies is substantial, it is uneven and intermittent across the country in part because of a lack of legal uniformity. State governments are inconsistent and unpredictable in their renewable energy laws, and the federal government has been remiss to implement nationwide uniform regulations. In this session, learn about the current state/federal jurisdictional breakdown as applied to storage.

Andrew O. Kaplan, Partner, Pierce Atwood LLP


Renewable Energy Initiatives in Georgia

The State of Georgia is positioned to become a leader in battery energy storage in the Southeast. The Georgia PSC approved Georgia Powers plan to own and operate 80MW of battery energy storage as part of achieving renewable energy goals. In this session, the manager of the Georgia Commission’s Energy Renewable Energy Group will take a comprehensive look at the state of Georgia and its recent growth in energy storage and renewable energy.
