AbstractNational Research Council Canada, in partnership with the AESO, conducted a study of the regulating reserves in Alberta to assess the potential for fast-acting assets such as energy storage to participate. Results of the study revealed that fast acting assets can positively impact system response times under certain conditions; specifically, when the conventional reserve fleet is replaced with 50% fast-acting assets and when resources are not close to the limits of their regulation range.
