ESA Comment on MIWG Energy Storage Integration project
In response to the latest update on the initiative at the September 29 Market Issues Working Group meeting, ESA has comments on several elements of the plans for Energy Storage Integration.
Foremost, ESA strongly agrees with other industry stakeholders that NYISO should not spend the next year working only on extending the Limited Energy Storage Resource’s maximum duration from one hour to four hours, particularly if this work comes at the expense of other storage-related market design activity. Although comments earlier this year from ESA did suggest the LESR extension as a possibly beneficial action, the additional information that NYISO has released in recent months suggests that there are already options for energy storage with more than an hour of duration.
