Energy storage is a unique grid asset, in that it can provide services that are functionally similar to those provided by generation, transmission, and distribution assets. Most of our market designs and regulatory constructs assume that assets primarily fall into one of these three categories. This talk will introduce the challenges that are raised by this dichotomy between the capabilities of energy storage and the regulatory and market treatment of grid assets. It will also discuss some potential solutions to overcoming these challenges, including the use of storagecapacity rights.
