CES has performed technical and economic evaluations of numerous emerging technology projects in various US markets including NYISO, PJM, CAISO, MISO and ERCOT, as well as in Canada (Ontario, Alberta) and India. These project evaluations have included power flow analysis and congestion analysis for the proposed project based on specific location characteristics. We also incorporate probabilistic scenario analysis to perform a thorough sensitivity assessment of potential uncertainties in the market.
CES maintains databases of historical locational market pricing in all markets for all the generation and load buses, and use location-specific pricing information in the project evaluation. Additional insights are drawn from the power flow analysis to adjust the base case scenarios developed using historical sanitized pricing and forecasted fuel prices and wind penetration.
CES has worked with its clients to develop offer strategies for storage resources in the RTO/ISO Frequency Regulation Markets. The strategies involve developing both the capacity and performance (or mileage) components of the offers, and consideration of the impacts of providing Frequency Regulation on the storage resource, including both short term maintenance impacts and long term life of the resource impacts.
