Draft Methodology

Development ID#


Sectoral Scope

1. Energy (renewable/non-renewable)


Under Development

The proposed methodology applies to grid energy storage projects that optimize operations to achieve a reduction in the grid’s GHG emissions. Low-carbon electricity is dispatched during periods when the marginal emission rate is high. The storage projects under consideration comprise energy storage technologies (e.g. chemical batteries) of different sizes. The proposed methodology is globally applicable to new and existing grid-connected energy storage systems (ESS).


The proposed methodology was submitted by REsurety, Inc. (opens on external site) and is currently at Step 3: Draft Methodology Development of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process, 4.3 (PDF).
