This paper presents an analysis methodology toconsider the effects of customer-side battery energy storagesystems (BESS) on electricity distribution networks motivated bypower-based tariffs. The paper describes the methodology bywhich the network effects can be defined.The methodology is verified by applying actual distributionnetwork and load data. The analysis shows that transition fromtraditional energy-based distribution tariff to power-based tariffcan lead to an accelerating increase in the application ofcustomer-side energy storages. The results indicate that thenetwork effects of the BESS are significant. The effect of energystorages depends partly on the voltage level of the networkcomponent. The results show that peak loads decrease in the caseelectricity distribution network. The most significant decrease,over 10% on average, is found in the low-voltage network, whichis not a minor improvement.
