      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.

      A Policymaker’s Guide to the Storage IRP Galaxy

      Utility resource planning will serve an important role in the march to realizing ESA’s vision of 35 GW of installed energy storage capacity by 2025. Reforming the way in which resource planning is done ensures a level playing field for all technologies, including energy storage, and allows all technologies to compete fairly. Utilities and regulators increasingly recognize the immense opportunity to provide flexibility and drive ratepayer savings, by deploying energy storage and reducing the need for spare capacity.

      Cuomo's Energy Storage Target Goals Now Include Li-ion Supercell Technology Demonstration Project

      New York State has awarded Cadenza Innovation funding for a demonstration project featuring Li-ion supercell technology, a standalone system that includes a rack-mounted 200kWh, 50kW battery storage unit. The project is part of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) drive to pursue nation-leading clean energy goals, including Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s energy storage target of 1500 megawatts in New York State by 2025. As the pioneering provider of energy storage solutions for license to lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery manufacturers, Cadenza Innovation offers unique cell design that combines the best properties from wound jelly rolls and large prismatic cells. That allows for high energy density at low cost for EV, PHEV, and grid markets.

      PJM Region and California Dominate US Storage via Different Paths

      While much of the U.S. activity surrounding energy storage has been focused on California and the PJM region, the locus of activity is expected to expand as states like New York and Massachusetts implement ambitious storage goals. A new report from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) that gives a snapshot of the energy storage landscape shows how differing policy drivers have led to the proliferation of large capacity and short duration storage projects in the PJM region while California leads in terms of MWh of capacity
