      Senate Bill Would Create America's First National Energy Storage Target

      California gave the U.S. energy storage market a boost in 2013 when regulators set a 1.3-gigawatt target for the state's three investor-owned utilities. The mandate has resulted in a wave of contracts for battery and thermal storage projects in California, including a record-breaking 250-megawatt procurement from Southern California Edison. Now, one national lawmaker wants to do the same for the rest of the country. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) quietly introduced legislation to the Energy Committee last week that would set national targets for energy storage by 2021 and 2025 in order to meet growing peak demand on the grid and help the integration of renewable energy.
