Clinic Director and Senior Economist Liz Stanton, PhD analyzed electric battery storage cost-effectiveness using the Massachusetts' efficiency program administrators' benefit-cost ratio methodology. Benefit-cost ratios are used to determine which energy saving measures are cost effective and must therefore be offered to Massachusetts energy customers. Dr. Stanton provided an updated analysis in March 2019. Researcher Bryndis Woods and Dr. Stanton analyzed the non-energy benefits of electric battery storage; that is, the benefits that accrue directly to participants in storage programs, the electric distribution companies themselves, or to society as a whole.
