Anesco, we salute you. Although the logic dictated that ROC accreditation should be retained for generating assets outputting to batteries, it took a confident developer and asset owner to test the theory in a live-firing exercise. Bravo, chaps.
This is an exciting development, and gives a welcome boost to co-located (or, more accurately, inter-operable) storage with renewable generation. Operators looking to include battery assets on site will still need to have some interesting conversations with PPA offtakers and investors, but that proposition has been made a little easier now, safe in the knowledge that the ROCs can remain in place, and storage should be able to focus on efficiency, smoothing variable output and increasing investor margins. Everyone's a winner in theory.
Do let us know if we can be of help. Our team loves this stuff.
