    White House Releases "A Policy Framework For The 21st Century Grid"
    Energy storage systems have the potential to optimize the operating capabilities of the grid and the use of renewable energy by storing power for later use Such systems can work more effectively in tandem with smart grid technology, can augment demand response resources to reduce and shift peak energy loads, and can improve power quality and service reliability. Significantly, utility-sited energy storage can be used to avoid or delay investments in new distribution capacity and substation equipment. Today, only about 2 5% of U S electricity is provided through storage, although other countries, such as Japan, use storage for up to 15% of their energy needs.
