Agenda

Day 1

KEY CONCEPTS IN ELECTRICITY STORAGE

  • Metrics and measures, such as levelised costs of energy & storage (LCOE, LCOS): calculation and critique.
  • Drivers for storage on different scales and timeframes (from sub-second to ‘bulk’).
  • The short and long-term impacts of evolving electricity supplies on electricity systems (balancing supply & demand).
  • The fundamentals of any storage business model: cost, energy in, energy out, energy vs capacity, price.
  • Comparing the applications of storage: which problems are solved, what value is added and where?

GRID-CONNECTED STORAGE APPLICATIONS

  • Understanding the patterns and scales of variability in electricity systems.
  • Key grid system operational requirements and metrics.
  • An explanation of “ancillary service” markets (such as frequency response) and the opportunities for storage.
  • Specific operational impacts of renewable and distributed power generators in different parts of the grid.
  • Renewable power integration
  • Timescale and market segmentation: contrasting the technical and business requirements from large-scale bulk storage to fast-moving ancillary services.

ELECTRICITY STORAGE SOLUTIONS

  • Storage technologies explained and compared in their business context, including emerging innovations.
  • The options for storing energy from electricity (including non-battery): current and emerging, large and small.
  • The key practical attributes of storage; including density, efficiency and scalability.
  • Deployment status and examples, including: pumped hydro (traditional and new gravity storage innovations), compressed air, flywheel, hydrogen.

FOCUS ON BATTERY STORAGE

  • A review of battery technologies (trends and futures), including Lithium-ion and flow batteries.
  • Why is Li-ion dominating market deployments?
  • Trends in cost and performance
  • Key operational considerations for battery storage; including sizing, cycling lifetimes, warranties, charging rates and more.
  • Emerging trends and revolutions in battery technology
  • Batteries vs fuel cells

Day 2

STORAGE ECONOMICS

  • A review of potential business cases for storage, including the role of “revenue stacking”.
  • Investment considerations (costs & returns) for energy storage projects, including
  • bankability issues such as storage service contract lengths and operational lifetimes.
  • Who will pay for storage (and do they capture all its value)?
  • Long-term economic and policy drivers, plus examples of short-term policy incentives.
  • Project deployment issues, including various contractual, permitting and other practical
  • hurdles (such as operational limitations of batteries).
  • Trends in storage costs (and understanding what these numbers actually measure).
  • Using simple Excel models to examine and illustrate the variables in an energy storage business case

MARKET DEPLOYMENT – FRONT-OF-METER

  • A case study & example-driven session, providing illustration and discussion of business drivers, deployment aspects and market lessons from in-grid and utility-scale storage
  • The implications of large-scale storage for power generators, utilities, DSOs and TSOs.
  • The integration of storage with existing infrastructures and business offerings.
  • Updated deployment case studies will include examples of: co-location with renewable
  • power, standalone storage projects, fossil/storage hybrids.

MARKET DEPLOYMENT – BEHIND-THE-METER

  • A case study & example-driven session, providing illustration and discussion of business drivers, deployment aspects and market lessons of grid-edge, aggregated and residential storage.
  • The implications of distributed, small-scale energy storage for power generators, utilities,
  • DSOs and TSOs.
  • The integration of storage with existing infrastructures and business offerings, such as
  • PV system sales.
  • Updated deployment case studies will include examples of: solar + storage, storage
  • aggregation at both residential and commercial scales, standalone commercial storage.
  • Grid-connected electric vehicles

THE EVOLUTION OF ENERGY STORAGE & THE COMPETITIVE ALTERNATIVES

  • Challenges to storage within current energy policy mechanisms.
  • Challenges to storage within current energy market and contracting structures.
  • Emerging and integrated/hybrid technologies
  • System Interconnection
  • Demand Management
  • Flexible capacity supply
  • Energy storage vs. energy substitution (e.g. power-to-heat and power-to-fuel).

CLOSING DISCUSSION: THE BUSINESS OF ELECTRICITY STORAGE

  • Reviewing the energy storage business: market players, business models, competition, the value chain, opportunities, threats, risks and returns.
  • Closing discussion & conclusions.
