How to generate profit for energy storage systems beyond ancillary services

About this event

We are seeing rapid growth in the use of energy storage systems to help integrate renewable energy, balance the electricity grid and to enhance energy security all over the world.

This is only set to increase, with commitments toward renewable energy adoption coming from nations and corporations. The European Union has recognised the important role energy storage can play in adding flexibility and reducing the curtailment of solar PV and wind.

While the business case for battery energy storage system (BESS) technology often begins with ancillary services, as markets evolve, other applications will become more and more important in the BESS asset revenue stack.

In this webinar, experts will discuss evolution of the revenue stack for batteries in Europe. Our speakers are directly involved in building a business case and optimising income on the market, maximising revenues for energy storage assets.

Taking part are Clean Horizon, an energy storage consultancy that helps build an optimal business case for storage, applying its simulation tool COSMOS, and YUSO, which provides route-to-market and energy optimisation services to BESS assets, operating an energy platform to provide market access.

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • Evolution of prices for ancillary services and how market saturation impacts prices
  • Additional fixed revenue streams like capacity mechanisms
  • Arbitrage and energy trading in different markets such as day-ahead, intraday and aFRR
  • The evolution of volatility in those markets, revenues that can be earned through different trading strategies in individual markets and cross-market
  • Fundamental drivers for volatility and liquidity
