CES’s Competitive Market Evaluation Tools for Storage or “CoMETS” is a suite of products that help technology and project developers evaluate and optimize energy storage for various grid connected and behind the meter applications. CoMETS was born out of the need to understand the various value propositions that can be captured by energy storage technologies. The CoMETS models include:
CoMETS also offers scenario analyses to understand potential opportunities and risks from: changes in market regulations which include environmental rules, fuel prices, wind penetration scenarios, and carbon price scenarios.
Since CES maintains databases of historical locational market pricing in all markets for all the generation and load buses, we 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.
