California is considered a global leader for showcasing how standalone and hybrid storage can effectively operate in the energy market. In the summer of 2021, a record breaking 1800 MW of storage was operating in the CAISO market – signifying the highest levels of storage on the grid to date across the world. This session will discuss lessons learned from storage performance in California during the summer of 2021, evaluating:

  • How storage resources operated during times of critical need utilizing 100% of storage capacity available (not just on the margins)
  • Energy storage performance in balancing the duck curve
  • Lessons learned for other RTOs and ISOs
  • Remaining gaps due to legacy structure
  • Role of prices vs. contracts vs. products
