by Ray Byrne (Sandia), Sean Hamilton (SMLD), Dan Borneo (Sandia), Todd Olinsky-Paul (CESA), and Imre Gyuk (DOE)

This report presents the economic case for the Sterling Municipal Light Department’s energy storage system. It was published by Sandia National Laboratories, with support from the Clean Energy States Alliance.

The goal of this report is to identify potential benefits and value streams from electrical energy storage. Benefits considered in this analysis include: energy arbitrage, frequency regulation, reduction in monthly network load, reduction in capacity payments to ISO New England, and grid resiliency.

CESA hosted a webinar on this report on 4/27/17, entitled "The Value Proposition for Energy Storage at the Sterling Municipal Light Department." Slides and a recording of this webinar are available here.
