  • ESA Member Update Webinar - An Educational Overview of the Energy Storage Integration Council (ESIC)

    Posted: April 17, 2014 - 16:00 / EPRI / Webinar

    On Thursday, April 17, 2014 the Energy Storage Association (ESA) held an educational webinar focused on the Energy Storage Integration Council (ESIC), an open forum convened by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and electric utilities to work with the energy storage industry to develop common technical approaches for safe, reliable, and cost-effective energy storage. With the near-term procurement of energy storage in California and other jurisdictions, preparing for and collaborating to overcome challenges of energy storage integration is critical. Participants learned about the ESIC working groups and opportunities to engage, including the next ESIC general meeting, co-located with the ESA Annual Conference in Washington, DC June 4-6 at the Wardman Park Marriott.
