A Stochastic Programming Framework for the Valuation of Electricity Storage

  title={A Stochastic Programming Framework for the Valuation of Electricity Storage},
  author={P. Mokrian and Moff Stephen},
It is often assumed in practice that electricity cannot be stored, even though in reality the storage of electricity is technically feasible. The issue is not whether electricity can be stored, but whether it can be stored efficiently and economically. In this paper, we present some of the current storage technologies and discuss their applications within power markets. We focus on the use of storage for intraday arbitrage and develop several models for optimizing the operation of a storage… Expand

A simple greedy algorithm is proposed that simultaneously computes the optimal operation policy and the economic value of a finite-capacity electric storage and is employed to numerically explore the value of storage under different pricing mechanisms. Expand
Using approximate dynamic programming for estimating the revenues of a hydrogen-based high-capacity storage device
The main conclusion drawn from the experiments is that it may be advisable to invest in large storage tanks to exploit the inter-seasonal price fluctuations of electricity. Expand
Multi-objective Valuation of Electricity Storage Services
Electricity storage services can bring benefit to multiple stakeholders in the grid, in various ways. Local integration planning from a single stakeholder’s point of view depends upon the availableExpand
Optimal Storage Arbitrage under Net Metering using Linear Programming
The optimal energy arbitrage problem for a piecewise linear cost function for energy storage devices using linear programming (LP) is formulated, based on the equivalent minimization of the epigraph, using an Auto-Regressive Moving Average model. Expand
Sell or Store? – An ADP Approach to Marketing Renewable Energy
In deregulated markets, electricity is usually traded in advance and the advance commitments have a time lag of several periods. For example, in the German intraday market, the seller commits toExpand
Stochastic valuation of energy storage in wholesale power markets
Energy storage systems are well poised to mitigate uncertainties of renewable generation outputs. Grid-scale energy storage projects are major investments which call for rigorous valuation and riskExpand
Electricity Trading and Negative Prices: Storage vs. Disposal
It is shown analytically that negative prices can substantially alter the optimal storage policy structure, and it is numerically established that ignoring negative prices could result in a considerable loss of value when negative prices occur more than 5% of the time. Expand
A methodology for the economic evaluation of power storage technologies in the UK market
In this thesis, we present a methodology for assessing the economic impact of power storage technologies. The methodology is founded on classical approaches to the optimal stopping of stochasticExpand
Is it More Valuable to Store or Destroy Electricity Surpluses?
A typical strategy for dealing with commodity surpluses is to store them for future sale; in particular, this is true of electricity. However, because electricity prices can be negative, there existsExpand
Estimating the Maximum Potential Revenue for Grid Connected Electricity Storage: Arbitrage and Regulation
The valuation of an electricity storage device is based on the expected future cash ow generated by the device. Two potential sources of income for an electricity storage system are energy arbitrageExpand


Energy storage and its use with intermittent renewable energy
A simple probabilistic method has been developed to predict the ability of energy storage to increase the penetration of intermittent embedded renewable generation (ERG) on weak electricity grids andExpand
▪ Abstract This article discusses briefly the status of energy storage technologies and explores opportunities for their application in the rapidly changing US energy marketplace. Traditionally,Expand
Opportunities for Electricity Storage in Deregulating Markets
Abstract Deregulating electricity markets are providing energy arbitrage opportunities for storage. As a result, storage values in the U.S. grew significantly from 1997 to 1998, and in many marketsExpand
Energy storage — a key technology for global energy sustainability
Abstract The quality of life today is dependent upon access to a bountiful supply of cheap energy. For a sustainable future, the energy should be derived from non-fossil sources; ideally, it shouldExpand
Stochastic Models of Energy Commodity Prices and Their Applications : Mean-reversion with Jumps and Spikes
I propose several mean-reversion jump-di usion models to describe spot prices of energy commodities that may be very costly to store. I incorporate multiple jumps, regime-switching and stochasticExpand
Value of storage in providing balancing services for electricity generation systems with high wind penetration
Abstract In an electricity grid with large wind penetration additional system balancing costs are incurred due to the intermittent nature of wind. In this work, we evaluated the benefits of usingExpand
Integrating energy storage with wind power in weak electricity grids
Energy storage is required to match wind generation to consumption. This time shifting can be accomplished with several hours of storage, but studies have shown that the economic value of suchExpand
Operating Hydroelectric Plants and Pumped Storage Units in a Competitive Environment
Abstract For bidding strategies and long-term valuation of the assets, a structural model with the ability to capture price volatility and dynamic interactions for all products is needed. ByExpand
A probabilistic method for calculating the usefulness of a store with finite energy capacity for smoothing electricity generation from wind and solar power
Abstract This paper describes a novel method of modelling an energy store used to match the power output from a wind turbine and a solar PV array to a varying electrical load. The model estimates theExpand
