Modelling the Market Impact of Battery Storage in Asia-Pacific Electricity Markets
In this paper, we present the results of simulations to forecast the wholesale market impact of battery storage on several classes of conventional generation, in terms of market prices received, market dispatch, and hence revenue. We present the results of this analysis across in three different Asia-Pacific markets (Australia’s NEM, the Philippines WESM and Singapore’s NEMS), each with different market fundamentals and storage quantity scenarios. From this, we draw out key risks and opportunities for energy market investors in the region.

Blockchain is not the future of electricity retail
Blockchain technology, as used successfully in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, is touted as a potential ‘disruptor’ of electricity markets by enabling peer-to-peer (P2P) electricity trading. In our view, blockchain is not the right foundation because its strengths are negated by the realities of the power system.
