Energy storage is being viewed increasingly as a resource that can contribute to power-system reliability and resource adequacy. However, most markets and system planners employ ad hoc approaches to ascribing capacity value to energy storage. This talk presents a dynamic-programming-based approach to conduct these assessments for energy storage. Illustrative case studies show how market-design choices impact the use and operation of energy storage and its reliability contribution.
