Target Costing for Electricity Storage
The amplitude of electricity price fluctuations in the market is the incentive to trade in electricity. In Germany, grid fees and charges for passing electricity are higher than the electricity price on the stock exchange. Hence, electricity storage is not a profitable business. This can only change if correspondingly high compensation for the supply of stored electricity is granted. The calculation model shows that without the promotion of electricity storage technology, nationwide security of supply with electricity will only be possible by maintaining or expanding conventional power plants as backup.
