The com­mer­ci­a­li­sa­ti­on and wi­de sca­le de­ploy­ment of ener­gy stor­a­ge see­ks to ta­ke ad­van­ta­ge of the ran­ge of re­ve­nue streams avai­la­ble to ener­gy stor­a­ge pro­jects, such as re­ser­ve, sy­s­tem ser­vi­ces and ba­lan­cing. The­re are a va­ri­e­ty of bu­si­ness mo­dels that cre­a­te op­por­tu­ni­ties for in­ves­tors, fun­ders, ge­ne­ra­tors and de­vel­o­pers, in­clu­ding co-lo­ca­ti­on and be­hind-the-me­ter / Stor­a­ge-as-a-Ser­vi­ce (SaaS).Ne­vert­he­less, the­re remain ju­ris­dic­ti­on-spe­ci­fic chal­len­ges to the full-sca­le rol­lout of ener­gy stor­a­ge, in par­ti­cu­lar around the fu­tu­re pre­dic­ta­bi­li­ty of re­ve­nue streams and the wi­der re­gu­la­to­ry re­gime and the ex­tent of mer­chant risk that in­ves­tors can ac­cept.The ener­gy stor­a­ge sec­tor will con­ti­nue to evol­ve with in­cre­a­sing op­por­tu­ni­ties in al­ter­na­ti­ve stor­a­ge tech­no­lo­gies to li­thi­um-ion bat­te­ries and pum­ped hy­dro, such as Com­pres­sed Air Ener­gy Stor­a­ge (CAES) and hy­dro­gen.This re­port is one of four sup­ple­ments, ex­pan­ding on the fin­dings of our 2018 Con­nec­ted Fu­tu­re re­port and our 2017 CMS In­fra­struc­tu­re In­dex.

CMS Ener­gy Glo­bal Bro­chu­re
The ener­gy sec­tor is used to chan­ge, but has ne­ver fa­ced gre­a­ter chan­ge than it does to­dayThe big­gest me­di­um and long-term is­sue of our ti­me is how to meet our ener­gy needs in a way that sustains the fu­tu­re of the pla­net, whi­le al­so sustai­ning the sec­tor itself, which is so es­sen­ti­al to our so­ci­e­ty.With over 450 la­wy­ers, the CMS Ener­gy and Cli­ma­te Chan­ge prac­ti­ce is one of the world’s lar­gest. We pro­vi­de cru­ci­al ad­vi­ce to govern­ments and bu­si­nes­ses as they en­ga­ge with the chal­len­ge of cli­ma­te chan­ge and  sha­pe their res­pon­ses to it.Sin­ce the 1980s we ha­ve led the way in de­sig­ning and im­ple­men­ting mo­dern ener­gy mar­kets around the world. We ha­ve al­so hel­ped to gui­de the re­ne­wa­bles sec­tor at eve­ry sta­ge of its de­vel­op­ment, from the ear­liest wind farms to so­lar PV, flo­a­ting off­sho­re wind, ener­gy stor­a­ge and elec­tric ve­hi­cle in­fra­struc­tu­re. Ma­ny of our clients re­qui­re spe­ci­a­list legal ad­vi­sers at­t­uned to glo­bal ge­o­po­li­tics, eco­no­mics and re­gu­la­ti­on. Our  in­vol­ve­ment goes far be­yond straightfor­ward po­wer ex­per­ti­se, as we help them na­vi­ga­te in­cre­a­sin­gly in­ter­lin­ked is­sues such as tech­no­lo­gi­cal dis­rup­ti­on, ur­ba­ni­sa­ti­on, so­ci­al con­cerns and po­li­ti­cal agendas. We en­su­re that the jigsaw pie­ces of the over­all ener­gy and cli­ma­te chan­ge puzz­le are not loo­ked at in iso­la­ti­on, whe­ther we are ad­vi­sing on cli­ma­te chan­ge stra­te­gy or new tech­no­lo­gy, oil & gas ex­plo­ra­ti­on or ener­gy ef­fi­ci­en­cy, pro­ject fi­nan­ce or M&A, ener­gy dis­pu­tes or re­gu­la­ti­on.Un­li­ke so­me sec­tors, whe­re ma­tu­ri­ty has brought ex­ten­si­ve standar­di­sa­ti­on and com­mo­di­ti­sa­ti­on, the ener­gy sec­tor is see­ing an in­crea­se in new ap­pro­a­ches and prac­ti­ces. We work with bu­si­nes­ses at eve­ry sta­ge of the ener­gy li­fe­cy­cle, as well as with re­gu­la­tors and govern­ments, to help them un­der­stand how the­se new de­vel­op­ments can se­cu­re not on­ly their com­mer­ci­al or po­li­ti­cal aims but al­so our col­lec­ti­ve fu­tu­re.
