ESA CEO Statement on Massachusetts Legislative Action Regarding Energy Storage

The Energy Storage Association (ESA) commends the Massachusetts House and Senate for their leadership this legislative session, advancing innovative policies to deploy energy storage to meet its clean energy goals and enhance grid resilience.

In our view, the Clean Peak Standard and storage deployment target initiatives put forward by the House and Senate are complementary and critical to ensuring the Commonwealth maintains its position as a leader among states in breaking down the hurdles to energy storage deployment, attracting industry jobs, and achieving the Commonwealth’s ambitious energy and environmental goals.

ESA urges Massachusetts legislators to work together in conference committee to finalize effective energy legislation that enables – through thoughtful inclusion of energy storage – a more efficient, resilient, sustainable and affordable electric grid for all Commonwealth households and businesses.
