Distribution-side energy storage is a natural mechanism for absorbing variability from renewable sources, and hence minimizing costly reliance on generator reserves. We consider a simple contract between a producer with uncertain output and storage. The optimal storage scheduling strategy is shown to be an inventory control-like policy, which we use to characterize the Nash equilibria arising between generation and storage.
