  • The Value of Distributed Electricity Storage in Texas: Proposed Policy for Enabling Grid-Integrated Storage Investments

    Posted: November 10, 2014 - 11:15 / ERCOT / Reports

    A report released today by Brattle economists finds that the deployment of grid-integrated distributed electricity storage in Texas could provide substantial net benefits to the power system in ERCOT and its electricity customers. The report, commissioned by Oncor Electric Delivery Company, a Transmission and Distribution Service Provider (TDSP) in Texas, evaluates whether storage could be cost-effectively deployed from the perspectives of retail customers, wholesale electricity market participants, and the combined system or “society as a whole” while maintaining wholesale power prices that continue to support necessary generation investments.

  • Future Ancillary Services in ERCOT

    Posted: September 27, 2013 - 12:20 / ERCOT / White Papers

    Over the years, ERCOT has been successful in complying with the National Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) standards with the Ancillary Services (AS) that it has procured and deployed. For example, ERCOT’s average monthly Control Performance Standard (NERC CPS1) scores have consistently been around 165% over the last year, which is a clear indication that ERCOT is performing extremely well in controlling frequency. Other performance measures also reflect that the ERCOT AS construct currently in place has served ERCOT well from a reliability and secure operations perspective.
