      Choose Your Own Future

      Over the past four years, the Energy Storage Association (ESA) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) have been working together to create a unique event, one that would leave the sales pitches at the door and allow for our utilities, engineers, system designers, grid operators, and technologists to work together collaboratively on advancing energy storage. We are working to create a better understanding of the myriad of storage technology, uses, design, integration, and operation (STUDIO) considerations needed for successful energy storage projects, and this fall we are excited to gather key power sector stakeholders to share their real-world energy storage experience.

      State Policies to Fully Charge Advanced Energy Storage: The Menu of Options

      State policymakers, utilities, businesses, and households are increasingly looking to advanced energy storage to reduce costs of electric service, enhance electric system reliability, and integrate more renewable resources onto the grid. However, the electric system was designed before cost-effective energy storage was available. Existing state rules and processes inadvertently bias against or exclude energy storage as an investment option, in comparison to conventional investments in generation, transmission, distribution, and demand management.

      Modernizing Minnesota’s Grid: An Economic Analysis of Energy Storage Opportunities

      (Washington, D.C. – July 11, 2017) - The Energy Storage Association (ESA) is encouraged by the results and outputs of an energy storage modeling report released by the Minnesota Energy Storage Alliance (MESA) today. The MESA report delineates the multiple benefits of utilizing energy storage systems to eventually replace the need for gas-fired peaking plants to meet the dynamic needs of operating the grid in Minnesota and throughout the Midwest Independent System Operator (MISO) territory. Importantly, this report begins to quantify and capture the multiple value streams that energy storage can offer to enable a more efficient, flexible, reliable and affordable grid.
