The definitive guide to building profitable C&I battery and VPP projects. Specifically written for battery sellers, VPP-builders and investors, our White Paper aims to inform market entry and sales strategy via a deep-dive into battery project economics. 
To reach our findings, we've modelled 280 hypothetical battery projects using the VIPPY™ engine, which mimics the bid-logic of a real-world battery. It is the culmination of months of effort from the New Energy Ventures team, and is peer reviewed by some of the most respected in the industry.
