      FACT SHEET: Obama Administration Announces Federal and Private Sector Actions on Scaling Renewable Energy and Storage with Smart Markets

      President Obama believes in the need to transition to a cleaner, more reliable, and affordable 21st century power grid. Under his leadership, transformations in how we produce and consume electricity are decreasing carbon pollution, scaling up renewable energy, and generating savings on consumers’ energy bills. Since 2009, renewable energy generation has increased at a record pace, while costs have decreased dramatically.  Building on this progress, smart electricity market reforms, enhanced transparency, and flexible energy resources such as storage and demand response have the potential to further accelerate the development of a cleaner and smarter grid.  In fact, in 2015 alone, the United States doubled the installed capacity of advanced energy storage to 500 megawatts (MW) and deployment of this key resource is projected to continue to expand.

      President Obama’s leadership has helped catalyze the largest investment in clean energy in U.S. history and has expanded that progress globally, providing the opportunity to advance low-carbon economies, create jobs, and establish entirely new industries that will drive global wealth and prosperity. We are already starting to see progress. Last year, the world set two new records –global investment in renewable energy was the highest ever, and, for the first time, more than half of the world’s new electric capacity came from clean sources. In addition, by 2020, global energy efficiency investment in buildings is projected to increase from $90 billion in 2014 to over $125 billion. But we have more work to do.

      America is Building a Clean-Energy Economy with Unprecedented Momentum

      Last week, President Obama visited an advanced battery factory in Jacksonville, Florida. As part of the clean-energy revolution that’s creating jobs and making our planet safer and more secure at the same time, this factory makes cutting edge energy-storage technology that will continue to help integrate new power sources into the electric grid. This week, American clean-energy leadership is also on display at the annual summit of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E). Over the past seven years, ARPA-E has invested in 475 transformative energy technologies that have secured over $1.25 billion in cumulative follow-on funding from the private sector.

    4. The Current State of Energy Technology

      The Current State of Energy Technology

      The range of options available to meet our energy needs is increasing, and this diversification creates a more dependable system and offers consumers new choices. For example, rooftop solar power, combined with next-generation energy storage, will help consumers cut electric bills while supplying the grid clean power during outages. The QTR helps us see what is possible.  We can now see what our clean energy future looks like, but we have to keep the momentum going.

      Fact Sheet: U.S. and India Climate and Clean Energy Cooperation

      To further support the achievement of our ambitious climate and clean energy goals, the United States and India have pledged to enhance our cooperation in this area.  The United States welcomes India’s intention to increase the share of renewable energy in electricity generation consistent with its intended goal to increase India’s solar capacity to 100 GW by 2022, and intends to support India’s goal by enhancing cooperation in clean energy and climate change.  Our two countries already have a robust program of cooperation, including the highly successful U.S.-India Partnership to Advance Clean Energy (PACE) umbrella program, and we will expand policy dialogues and technical work on clean energy and low greenhouse gas emissions technologies.

      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.
