Description (excerpt):

This study identifies the amount of energy storage that can be incorporated cost-effectively
into Nevada’s future electricity resource mix.

 In 2020, up to 175 MW of utility-scale battery storage (with 4-hour storage capacity) could be
deployed cost-effectively statewide.
 By 2030, the economic potential for utility-scale storage increases to a range from 700 MW to
more than 1,000 MW, depending most significantly on the extent to which storage costs
decline over time.
 Behind-the-meter (BTM) storage could add up to 30 MW of storage capacity by 2030 under
favorable conditions, and this could further increase by up to 40 MW through the provision of
cost-effective utility-administered BTM storage incentives
