Prospects for Battery Storage Economics in MISO: A Long-Term Outlook

In September 2022, MISO opened its energy and ancillary service markets to storage resources for the first time, in compliance with FERC Order 841. One year later, the standalone battery capacity in MISO’s interconnection queue has expanded from 13 GW to 38 GW, demonstrating a significant increase in investor and developer interest in the US’s second-largest ISO.

Meanwhile, several recent policy reforms may impact MISO’s battery market dynamics. FERC and MISO’s interconnection queue reforms will affect the speed of battery buildout shortly, and MISO’s capacity market’s accreditation methodology reform along with its seasonal adjustments will influence battery projects’ revenue prospects from capacity auctions.

In this session, we will dive into business cases for batteries in MISO, including the following topics:

  • Major battery revenue streams: To what extent do capacity market payments, ancillary services revenues, energy arbitrage, and locational nodal value make up the battery business case in MISO?
  • Regional hotspots: What are the most promising locations for battery deployment in MISO, and what markets and services should batteries focus on in these hotspots?
  • Impact of policy reforms: How will the recent policy reforms on the interconnection queue, seasonal capacity auction, and updated de-rating factor calculations impact the profitability of battery projects?
  • Ancillary service market price outlook: How will ancillary services’ prices develop with the rollout of battery storage?

We look forward to welcoming you to the session.
