ITP was commissioned by the COAG Energy Security Board (ESB) to undertake a study into the economics and regulation of distribution level energy storage business models. The study is intended to support ESB’s important work on the integration of distributed energy resources (DERs) and the development of the post 2025 market design.
The primary focus of the study was battery energy storage however other forms of storage such as hot water and other controllable loads were also within scope. The study considered aggregated batteries, non-aggregated batteries, DNSP owned/operated, third party owned/operated and other co-owned generation and batteries.
The ESB released the report in August 2020.
