      Calif. utility inks largest U.S. battery purchase in history

      Southern California Edison said late last week it had finalized what analysts called the nation's largest-ever purchase of battery storage, as the state of California seeks to ramp up renewables and retire gas-fired plants in coming years. The new storage in Southern California tops the 590 MW contracted by NV Energy in Nevada last year, making it the largest single procurement in the United States, said Jason Burwen, vice president for policy at the Energy Storage Association. "This is the biggest single procurement of battery energy storage projects that we are aware of," wrote Burwen in an email.

      U.S. Energy Storage Association Issues New Safety Resource for Storage Businesses Nationwide

      The U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA) today published U.S. Energy Storage Operational Safety Guidelines, which provides energy storage businesses and users a compendium of codes, standards, and additional guidelines to plan for and mitigate wide-ranging potential operational hazards.  

      This is the latest resource to come from ESA’s years-long effort to advance industry safety strategies, which culminated in the April 2019 announcement of an Energy Storage Corporate Responsibility Initiative (CRI) Task Force and Corporate Responsibility Pledge.  Currently, nearly 60 signatories have taken the safety and responsibility pledge, including dozens of companies that have contributed plans and guidelines to this latest safety and planning guide.

      CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman’s Statement on Tax Provisions

      “We are disappointed in the tax provisions announced this morning that omitted a provision for stand-alone energy storage,” said Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the U.S. Energy Storage Association. “This was a clear opportunity for Congress to address the urgent challenges of climate change and to support clean energy innovation. The Energy Storage Incentive and Deployment Act of 2019 is a bipartisan measure to level the playing field for energy storage technologies that enable a more resilient, efficient and sustainable grid.”

      Congress Has a Chance to Pass Meaningful Energy Legislation

      At a time of nearly unprecedented legislative gridlock on Capitol Hill, there are too few policies that have the bipartisan support and national importance necessary to move through Congress. But one of those policies has received the backing of key congressional constituencies and could revolutionize the energy grid as we know it. This Op/Ed from Kelly Speakes-Backman and Heather Reams describes the need for a stand-alone storage investment tax credit.
