The Economics of Demand Flexibility: How “Flexiwatts” Create Quantifiable Value for Customers and the Grid

In this report we analyze demand flexibility’s economic opportunity. In the residential sector alone, widespread implementation of demand flexibility can save 10–15% of potential grid costs, and customers can cut their electric bills 10–40% with rates and technologies that exist today. Roughly 65 million customers already have potentially appropriate opt-in…

The Economics of Battery Energy Storage

Utilities, Regulators, and private industry have begun exploring how battery-based energy storage can provide value to the U.S. electricity grid at scale. However, exactly where energy storage is deployed on the electricity system can have an immense impact on the value created by the technology. With this report, we explore…

The Electricity System Value Chain

The Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) has developed a framework that describes the major activities required for the electricity grid to function. Because the grid system network is not a linear value chain it becomes more difficult to see how a node can be removed or where new value can be…
