DNV GL-led consortium finds viable business case for community energy storage

Small-scale, grid-connected energy storage solutions – or “community batteries” – can have a viable business case, supporting the ongoing growth of decentralized energy generation resources. This is one of the key findings of a feasibility study published today by DNV GL, based on work by an industry-wide consortium that includes energy storage firm Alfen and flexibility aggregator Peeeks. The study finds that – given current costs for lithium-ion battery technology and grid expansion projects – community storage can be both economically and socially viable. Furthermore, it outlines a decision-making framework to help grid operators and other stakeholders identify and optimize business models and revenue streams for community storage in any market.

On 13 June 2017, the European Parliament approved by a large majority the revision of the EU energy legislation on energy labelling. One of the changes that will be most perceptible to consumers will be the revision of the energy labelling categories, which will range from A to G. This means the end of ‘A+’ or ‘A+++’ categories. The new energy indicators are to be found on most of the electrical appliances from the end of 2019 onwards.
