      SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Panelists at a session held here Monday at the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) conference agreed that states should have active roles in determining the future of their energy storage markets but had differing opinions on the impacts of a recent Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) order. In February, FERC issued Order 841, which aimed to remove barriers to energy storage resource participation in the capacity, energy and ancillary services markets. The order directs Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs) and Independent System Operators (ISOs) to revise their market rules so that they recognize the physical and operational characteristics of energy storage resources. However, industry groups including NARUC, the Edison Electric Institute, the American Public Power Association and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association have requested a rehearing of the FERC decision on the grounds that it exceeds the agency’s jurisdiction.
