U.S. Wind-plus-Storage Roadmap

by Daniel Finn-Foley

This report builds upon our previous analysis of the potential wind-plus-storage market, examining drivers behind wind-paired deployments today, and potential revenue streams in the future. A proposed, and now potentially retracted, wind-plus-storage PPA in Montana, could serve as a model for valuing firmed wind, while Massachusetts's clean peak standard provides the best opportunity yet to incentive the pairing. As opportunities emerge across the country this report examines the technical feasibility of firming wind, and dives into the next steps that would be needed to make energy storage a standard feature for wind developers.
