Co-locating batteries with solar PV: A silver bullet?

With both decreases in French wholesale market prices and increases in price cannibalisation expected, anticipated revenues for solar PV plants exposed to the wholesale market in France are falling rapidly, albeit not leading to unviable business cases. Co-locating existing or new solar PV assets with battery storage systems is touted as one approach to mitigate a lot of the potential downsides of future developments, i.e. by charging the battery in hours of overproduction and discharging it in high price hours.

In this webinar, we will look into potential upsides arising from co-locating solar PV and BESS from the market price side, from potentially advantageous regulatory setups and from a cost savings perspective.

Some of the key questions we will address include the following:

  • How can large-scale solar PV and large-scale batteries benefit one another?
  • How does the co-located business case compare to a standalone large-scale solar PV asset?
  • What is the upside in terms of cost savings from co-locating a new battery with a solar PV asset?
  • What is the optimal sizing ratio of the solar PV asset, the battery, and the shared grid connection? ​​​​​​
