Project duration: February 2017 – July 2017

Regen has been working closely with Western Power Distribution (WPD) to develop detailed scenarios to understand the future of distributed generation, demand and storage in their licence areas.

Off the back of this work WPD commissioned Regen to develop an approach to model the growth and operation of storage assets, so as to better understand how these assets are likely to be used and their ‘mode of operation’; including their typical profile of charge and discharge.

Building on the learning and expertise gained from our Energy Storage - Towards a Commercial Model paper, Regen are helping WPD to understand:

  • The potential scale of growth of energy storage within its distribution networks
  • The type of energy storage assets/projects that are likely to be deployed and their business models
  • The typical operating behaviour of storage assets, how they are likely to be used and their typical daily mode(s) of operation

As part of this work, Regen has developed a consultation paper around storage growth scenarios and operating modes.

This paper is available to download and fill in here

The consultation is open until 21st June 2017.
