Currently batteries in PJM participate in the regulation market as a generation asset, but a number of projects have been proposed that offer the opportunity for batteries to participate as transmission assets. A cross-divisional team at PJM is evaluating the past, present, and future use of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) as a solution to transmission congestion or reliability upgrades. This presentation will discuss considerations for PJM?s cross-functional strategy to model, analyze, and approve energy storage devices as transmission solutions. It will touch on recommendations that span PJM?s Markets, Operations, and Planning divisions.
