The WSJ reports that energy storage is starting to cut into the market for natural gas peaker plants in the U.S., which are deployed at peak demand times during midday.
The economics of a new gas peaker plant ($87/MWh) lose out to new battery arrays ($36/MWh). “I could see in 10 to 15 years where you have 30% of what is traditionally a peaker market served by storage,” Ben Fowke, CEO of Xcel Energy, a Minnesota-based utility, told the WSJ.
