This ESTAP webinar provided an introduction to QuEST, an open-source software application suite for energy storage valuation. QuEST was developed by Sandia National Laboratories as a free, public tool to assist in energy storage valuation for various use cases.

In this webinar, members of Sandia’s energy storage analytics group  demonstrated how to use the software, and presented a case study using the QuEST BTM (“behind-the-meter”) application to estimate the cost savings provided by energy storage for a time-of-use customer. This webinar is part of a larger effort to introduce software tools developed by Sandia to the public.​
