Research output: NRELTechnical Report


This report is part of a series investigating the potential for utility-scale energy storage in South Asia. This Readiness Assessment Framework for Utility-Scale Energy Storage forms the basis for forthcoming country-specific evaluations of policy and regulatory environments for energy storage in the region, beginning with India. These evaluations provide insights on the opportunities and barriers for energy storage growth and deployment in each country. This report offers the overarching framework for these evaluations. It is designed to be allow policymakers and regulators to quickly gauge how well existing policy and regulatory frameworks support investments in energy storage and can be applied in any jurisdiction regardless of its governance, regulatory, or market structure. It is not designed to recommend specific policy or regulatory solutions and does not inform whether energy storage is the best solution, among a range of possible technical and non-technical interventions, to meet system needs.
