During this pre-conference workshop, get insights into the key market opportunities for energy storage resources in the U.S. market. This workshop builds on the information presented in our ES101 workshop but also stands alone as an in-depth session on U.S. markets and business models for energy storage. Facilitators will explain market participation rules in the seven U.S. organized wholesale (ISO) markets as well as describe important drivers at the federal and state level. Material will cover market design features that promote or challenge storage resource participation in the capacity, energy and ancillary service markets, including historial pricing, as well as requirements for demand response and other distributed energy resources. Presenters will look at pending market design changes, such as those involving multiple use applications and hybrid resources, and their implications on the value proposition for energy storage. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn how energy storage can or cannot provide services in ISO markets 
  • Identify new market design features being considered by ISOs, by FERC and by states that can influence the value proposition of energy storage 
  • Better understand the market potential for energy storage through value stacking
