Energy storage policy overview
Energy Storage Policy Overview

  • UC Berkeley/UCLA Law White Paper on Energy Storage

  • Gathering of industry stakeholders

  • Key barriers

  • Recommended policies


Why energy storage
Why Energy Storage?

  • Definition: “A physical system with the ability to capture energy for dispatch or for displacement of electricity use at a later time”

  • Enabling technology to integrate 33% renewables by 2020

  • Reduces need for peak load power and spinning reserves

  • Grid operational support


Technology overview
Technology Overview

  • Bulk to distributed spectrum

  • Pumped Hydro

  • Compressed Air

  • Rechargeable Batteries (such as lead acid, sodium sulfur, lithium ion, flow)

  • Thermal (end use and solar)

  • Hydrogen

  • Flywheels

  • Ultracapacitors

  • Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage


Key barriers to deploying energy storage
Key Barriers to Deploying Energy Storage

  • Technology Maturity

  • Regulations & Utility Processes

  • Revenue opportunities

  • High Capital Costs

  • Lack of Awareness of Energy Storage Benefits


Regulatory considerations
Regulatory Considerations

  • FERC rules for energy storage asset class

  • CAISO “unbundling” ancillary services

  • CEC and CPUC add energy storage to energy loading order

  • CPUC establish “resource adequacy” value

  • Method for energy storage value to be reimbursed to providers


Considerations to lower costs
Considerations to Lower Costs

  • Continued R&D

  • Tax credits and incentives

  • Federal loan guarantees

  • CPUC standardized contracts for customer provided storage

  • Rate basing substation and utility scale storage systems

  • Encourage large-quantity commitments

  • Seek long-term (multi-year) revenue commitments

Deploy at the “speed of total value”


Methods for promoting storage
Methods for Promoting Storage

  • Industry publication of project data

  • CAISO energy storage stakeholder group

  • Federal legislation

  • DOE Initiatives

  • CA legislation (AB 2514)

  • CEC “2020 Vision Study”


2020 california energy storage vision
2020 California Energy Storage Vision

  • Part 1: Technical status review of various technologies and remaining research and development needs

  • Part 2: Strategic vision of energy storage scenarios over next ten years

  • Highlights value of energy storage to meet future state energy goals


Goals and project timeline
Goals and Project Timeline

  • Support CPUC AB 2514 process

  • Input to CEC 2011 IEPR process

  • Input from utilities, energy storage system manufacturers, and other stakeholders (meeting March 30th)

  • 2011 IEPR Committee Workshop April 28, 2011

  • Findings by June 2011

  • Final report Summer 2011
