Abstract

Abstract Deregulating electricity markets are providing energy arbitrage opportunities for storage. As a result, storage values in the U.S. grew significantly from 1997 to 1998, and in many markets are approaching the cost of replacement capacity. The data suggest that hourly prices allow a storage device to capture up to twice as much value as blocked prices.
