ESA Initial Comment on Nevada PUC’s Docket 16-01013 Investigation into Battery Energy Storage

Posted: May 4, 2016 - 10:40 / Resource Planning / ESA Filings

ESA submitted the attached filing to the Nevada Public Utilities Commission (“Commission”) to inform the incorporation of battery energy storage into Nevada utilities’ resource planning and procurement. Specifically, ESA requests that the Commission direct utilities to explicitly consider battery energy in resource planning using up-to-date modeling inputs and methods. Doing so will ensure that Nevada utilities explore the wide range of resource possibilities necessary to ensure an optimal resource portfolio to delivery reliability at least cost.
