      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.

    2. Energy Storage Can Help California Avoid Major Blackouts

      Energy Storage Can Help California Avoid Major Blackouts

      The power outages impacting hundreds of thousands of Californians serve as a reminder of how we need to modernize the grid and make it more resilient. With the help of Congress, that modernization could happen even faster. Energy storage is an essential component of a secure, resilient, low-carbon and cost-effective electricity future, and California is at the epicenter of this change. Not only does storage support the deployment of renewables and create jobs, it can also provide key options for flexibility and a smarter way to make households and businesses resilient to grid disruptions.

      FERC Pushing for Energy Innovation Over Status Quo

      One of the few things people in Washington can agree upon these days is the need for a smarter, more resilient energy grid. Our technology-driven, connected lives make power outages that much more difficult to navigate. Just ask the 44 million people in Argentina what it’s like to work in the dark when their electric grid went out on Sunday. If we want a smarter grid, we need energy storage to make the electric system flexible, efficient and resilient.

    4. Utilities Need Storage to Keep Renewable Energy Growing

      Utilities Need Storage to Keep Renewable Energy Growing

      State standards are driving electric utilities’ use of renewable energy — but without battery storage capacity, electricity generated from wind, water or the sun may soon saturate the market in certain regions. Ten years ago, utilities underestimated how much renewable energy they would use due to states’ regulations and the falling cost of wind and solar power. But without large-scale battery storage, the increases observed so far could be at risk of plateauing.
