ESA Comment on NYISO DER Roadmap Presentation May 2016

Posted: June 13, 2016 - 15:37 / DER / ESA Filings

ESA commends NYISO staff for taking the initiative to reach out to stakeholders and better incorporate considerations of DER providers in market designs, rules, and procedures.

ESA has encouraged NYISO to fully consider all the unique capability of energy storage in its DER Roadmap to ensure that storage can provide its full value. Energy storage has characteristics that are well suited for wholesale market participation. Unlike distributed solar generation, distributed storage is fully dispatchable. Unlike much demand response, distributed storage can be directly metered. ESA suggests that a particular focus on energy storage in the roadmap is warranted.
