Optimal Time to Invest Energy Storage System under Uncertainty Conditions

Yongma Moon
2014 Energies  
This paper proposes a model to determine the optimal investment time for energy storage systems (ESSs) in a price arbitrage trade application under conditions of uncertainty over future profits.  ...  Also, improvement in efficiency of ESSs can reduce the uncertainty of arbitrage profit and, consequently, the reduced uncertainty enables earlier ESS investment, even for the same power capacity.  ...  Thus, in this research we discuss how decision-making might be different under uncertainty and decision flexibility. We focus specifically on investment in the arbitrage trade application of ESSs.  ...
