ESA Comment to MISO RASC on Energy Storage Under Resource Adequacy

Posted: September 9, 2016 - 15:43 / MISO / ESA Filings

ESA submitted its comments in response to MISO RASC’s request for comments regarding its August 31, 2016, discussion on energy storage under resource adequacy. ESA acknowledges MISO staff for soliciting input from stakeholders on this topic.

ESA seeks clarification from MISO on what additional requirements follow from energy storage considered as a “generation resource.” MISO suggests that Energy Storage can qualify as a Planning resource by registering as a BTMG. In Module A of the Common Tariff Provisions and in Section 4.2.1.1 of BPM-011, BTMG is said to be “generation resource.” We suggest MISO should review usage of the term “generation resources” in these documents and clarify to stakeholders on the additional requirements that follow from categorizing Energy Storage as generation resources for BTMG (e.g., price quantity bid pairs, ramp rate, must-offer requirements, etc).
