DNV KEMA Energy & Sustainability has launched a customized energy storage valuation service that is designed to help utilities assess storage applications on their system.

The company says the service is meant to address the needs generated by actions such as the Sept. 3 preliminary ruling by the California Public Utilities Commission, which set a January 2014 deadline for investor-owned utilities in the state to submit plans outlining their energy storage resources.

According to DNV KEMA, the energy storage valuation service will give utilities engineering advice delivered by experienced professionals, analytic tool kits customized to specific utility grids, a recommended energy storage portfolio, a plan for scaled deployment to maximize return on investment, and a multi-year road map for adoption and compliance to potential initiatives.

DNV KEMA says the service is possible due to analytics tools such as its recently debuted ES-GRID, as well as its ES-Select, KERMIT and Microgrid Optimizer.
