      CEO Statement on U.S. Section 301 Tariffs Announced Yesterday

      “The Energy Storage Association (ESA) anticipates that the inclusion of Chinese battery components in the tariffs, as drafted, will likely represent a negligible impact on the growth of the energy storage market. Nonetheless, ESA is concerned by the battery tariffs announced yesterday because the Administration is creating unnecessary uncertainty for the U.S. energy storage market,” said Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of ESA. “If these tariffs are adopted, the companies and people who plan, build, and service battery storage facilities will be faced with risk that may inhibit storage deployment, even as the U.S. looks to strengthen its energy infrastructure and enhance resilience.”

      ESA Applauds the IRS Private Letter Ruling on Residential Storage-plus-Solar

      The IRS’ recent private letter ruling marks a milestone for the residential storage-plus-solar industry. The determination that an energy storage retrofit of a residential solar PV project is eligible for a 30 percent investment tax credit (“ITC”) under Section 25D is a step in the right direction toward a common-sense tax approach to storage. Reducing barriers for taxpayers is an important action this Administration can take to continue growing this industry and to create thousands of new jobs.

We are pleased the CPUC correctly recognizes the unique flexibility of storage, which offers savings to ratepayers, enhances customer choice and improves grid reliability and resilience. The CPUC’s decision will allow all storage assets -- owned either by customers, by utilities, or by third-parties – to provide a greater range of services to the electric system and avoid more costly peaking resources or upgrades to the distribution infrastructure."

    10. Energy Storage Policy Discussions for an Accelerating Industry

      Energy Storage Policy Discussions for an Accelerating Industry

      Next month, the energy storage industry is returning to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. for the 4th Annual Energy Storage Policy Forum. There’s plenty to discuss. Just last week, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission took action regarding the Department of Energy’s (DOE) proposed rulemaking on grid resiliency pricing, opening the door to more analysis on ensuring resilience of the bulk power system. In New York, Governor Cuomo set an ambitious goal for New York to meet a 1500 MW energy storage target by 2025. And last fall, after the release of 35x25: A Vision for Energy Storage, the industry has a clear and actionable path to 35GW of new energy storage by 2025. This forum is the premiere event for key conversations on next steps in public policy that will shape the U.S. market for energy storage for years to come.
