As the energy storage market matures, there is a discernible trend suggesting increasing investor comfort with associated risks. While tolling arrangements and floor prices act to provide a predictable income, the merchant model, where revenues are tied to market prices, introduces an element of risk but also the potential for higher returns.

As stakeholders gain a deeper understanding of the risk-return dynamics within the battery storage sector, a more balanced and informed investment landscape emerges. This trend signifies a maturing market where investors are progressively embracing the potential of grid-scale battery assets while strategically managing associated risks.

In this webinar we explore:

  • Key considerations for securing financing and investment for BESS assets
  • Trends in price floors and insurance products
  • Commercial perspectives around operating and optimising battery storage assets
  • The importance of market forecasting, revenue stacking, dispatch optimisation, and auction bidding strategies in ensuring that battery storage assets achieve their full value potential
