Discussing the BESS operational techno-economic evaluation cycle

Battery energy storage systems (BESS) have the unique ability to provide a fast, prolonged, and bi-directional response to changing grid conditions. These capabilities make BESS essential, fully controllable, resources for electric grid operators. They mitigate the impacts of intermittent resources, firm up production of co-located renewables, better navigate temporal discrepancies between generation and load and provide grid services such as voltage and frequency control.

This webinar presented a holistic summary of the techno-economic mechanisms that impact the design and operation of BESS projects. Specifically, it highlighting the interdependent nature of the “usage – revenue – cost” cycle of a BESS project, illustrating the need for right-sizing and optimizing the project during the design stage and over its lifetime.

Our panel also discussed typical commercial structures that govern BESS usage and monetization, plus technology specific consequences of usage, such as energy capacity degradation, capacity augmentation, and associated costs.
