Energy Storage 101, Part 3: Applications and Economics

This ESTAP webinar is the third in a multi-part energy storage webinar series will cover energy storage applications and economics. Numerous opportunities for revenue and cost savings have been identified for energy storage on both sides of the meter, including frequency regulation, demand charge management, arbitrage, ancillary services, T&D deferral and others. This webinar will look at when and where these opportunities exist, which services can be effectively “stacked,” how revenue-generating opportunities are sometimes limited due to market rules or utility tariffs, and what future opportunities might arise with changes in market rules and regulations.
