Benefits of battery systems in the distribution networks have been
widely identified, but current regulation model prohibits the
distribution system operators (DSOs) from owning and operating these
systems. This paper presents a novel business model where an aggregator
company makes the investment to the battery system and offers the system
as a service for the DSO.This business model, and related different
revenue streams and cost savings required to make the business case
viable, are defined in this paper. The suggested model creates a market
place for the DSO, where they can purchase reservation time from the
battery, which enables them to technically and economically benefit from
the battery system. This service and business model are compatible with
the current regulatory environment.
