Abstract Outline:
Energy storage systems have the capability to perform a range of functions in the NEM. The successful commercialisation of energy storage relies on each system being able to provide a range of services and thereby accessing multiple revenue streams for the same investment.

This presentation explores what revenue streams are currently available for storage in the NEM, including a summary of the form of arrangement required and extent to which revenue streams can overlap in respect of the same MWs of electricity. We will also highlight what additional revenue streams may become available as a result of proposed regulatory reforms.
