On Monday, March 2, from 3:45 - 4:15 pm PT, DNV GL's Richard Fioravanti, Vice President, Distributed Energy Resources, will present at the pre-conference workshop II: Competing in the California Market for Energy Storage. Mr. Fioravanti is presenting a Use Case Study titled: Storage on the Distribution System and Solar Storage Applications.
As storage systems begin to extend towards the distribution and customer side location, many questions are raised at to the requirements of the business case. What are primary applications, what is the optimum size, what is the optimum duration for the devices? These questions are further complicated when additional “bundled” applications are applied or when the storage device is coupled with another DER device such as solar. In his Use Case analysis, Mr. Fioravanti will review DNV GL's models utilized and evaluations of storage on (1) the wholesale market, (2) the distribution system, (3) optimized applications for end-use systems, and (4) solar-storage applications. Matching a storage device to the correct application is a prime factor in determining its economic viability. For distribution system applications circuit topology, modeling of loads and system requirements are used to simulate battery operations and derive revenues through engineering performance of the distribution circuit.
