  • Advanced Energy Storage Caucus Launched in Congress to Bipartisan Support

    Washington, D.C. (May 8, 2017) – U.S. Representatives Chris Collins (R-NY) and Mark Takano (D-CA) launched the Advanced Energy Storage Caucus in Congress last week, joined by executives from leading utilities, developers, and manufacturers of storage technologies. The focus of the Caucus is to educate Members of Congress regarding the benefits of storage to the U.S. electric system and investigate ways to accelerate job growth and investment in U.S. advanced energy storage industries. Cost-effective, safe energy storage systems are creating a more resilient and efficient electric grid today, with thousands of systems already in operation throughout the United States. In recognition of the critical role energy storage plays in making the U.S. electric system reliable, affordable, and sustainable, the Caucus will periodically brief Members of Congress on how energy storage is reshaping the way electricity is generated, distributed, and consumed, and how policy can remove impediments to greater use of battery storage.
