      Enabling Energy Storage to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

      Energy storage is an enabling technology. At its most simple, energy storage enables electricity to be saved for use at a later time, when and where it is most needed. This creates efficiencies and capabilities for the electric grid—including the ability to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Increasing storage deployment will enable new and broader opportunities for a cleaner supply mix, as well as enable the better use of existing generation. In addition, storage increases the capacity of the grid to integrate more clean and distributed energy resources.

      Spotlight on Storage: NYPA, Brenmiller Energy and Purchase College Launch Demonstration Project for Innovative Thermal Energy Storage Technology JUNE 21, 2018 - 10:14SPOTLIGHT ON STORAGE Posted by Marissa Gillett, VP of External Relations About the ESA Blog Spotlight on Storage features commentary on new and innovative developments in the U.S. energy storage industry from ESA staff, members, and supporters. In today’s inaugural posting for the new Energy Storage Association (ESA) blog, Spotlight on Storage, we turn to a recently unveiled collaboration between ESA member companies New York Power Authority (NYPA) and Brenmiller Energy, who partnered on an innovative thermal energy storage project at Purchase College, State University of New York (SUNY). The joint R&D project between NYPA and Brenmiller will investigate thermal energy storage as a means to increase the efficiency of a standard combined heat and power system. At no cost to the College, a new system will be installed specifically to support the gym, replacing the aging district heating loop from the College’s central heating plant, which is projected to save the State University of New York about $100,000 per year.

      ESA CEO Statement on Massachusetts Senate Bill 2545 – An Act to Promote a Clean Energy Future

      The Energy Storage Association (ESA) is encouraged by the inclusion of energy storage in legislation passed by the Massachusetts Senate last night. Establishing a separate energy storage target, as Senate Bill 2545 would require, would ensure that the Commonwealth maintains a leadership position next to California, New York, New Jersey, and Arizona in the drive to realizing the vision of 35 GW of energy storage by 2025. Moreover, along with complementary policies already in place, an energy storage target will help the Commonwealth to realize the immense ratepayer savings and increased grid resilience that energy storage resources can provide.

      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.
