Is there a clear link between growing renewable penetration and energy storage spreads?

This report examines trends in energy storage spreads across all seven US ISOs over the past five years, and explores four key fundamental drivers: renewable penetration, natural gas prices levels, diurnal net load shapes, and intra-day ramp rates. Given how growth in renewable production can lead to increased price volatility and frequency of hours with relatively low prices, one might expect to find a relationship between growth in renewable penetration and attractive energy storage spreads.
