FERC Order 841: Market Opportunities and Unanswered Questions

by Daniel Finn-Foley

FERC Order 841 will ensure energy storage’s eligibility in wholesale markets, but project economics are still unfavorable in all but the most niche and well-understood applications. Capturing a slice of the billions of dollars in energy and capacity markets remains unfeasible for storage without layering multiple revenue streams, but as interconnection queues swell with proposed storage facilities it is clear that developers and investors see the newly level playing field as the missing piece to spur the innovation and create bright prospects for storage in the future.

This report provides a comprehensive look at FERC Order 841 and it's implications, including background, energy storage participation and current ISO rules, and opportunity analysis of capacity, ancillary services and energy markets.
