Article: Considerable spillage, in the high intermittency “10x” scenario

Continuing our analysis of these hypothetical future scenarios to understand the shape of “unserved energy” and hence the potential contribution of Demand Response – today I post about energy spilled in a future with high intermittent generation supply.

Article: Three Possible Business Models for Distributed Storage

GSES recently gave a presentation at the APVI workshop in Brisbane as part of the International Battery Association conference.

The content of the presentation would be of interest to WattClarity readers, hence this guest post – which focuses on three possible future business models, that would mean very different outcomes to the incumbents that have become accustomed to “business as usual” over many years.
