The purpose of this project is to assess the economic viability of installing batteries by a large consumer to assist in peak shaving. Its main goals include using system dynamics modeling to determine the pricing and incentive structures that best combine with feasible alternative energy sources to produce savings on the demand side for the local companies. The case of WPI is used to represent a typical large consumer. Furthermore, various scenarios were explored to utilize the current data and to meet the expectations of our sponsor.
