      CEO Statement on California Governor Brown SB100 Bill Signing

      The Energy Storage Association (ESA) applauds Governor Brown for signing into law today SB100 – legislation that will position California definitively as a leader in the nation to move to 100% zero-carbon electricity by 2045. The innovation of California within the energy sector is welcomed by the storage industry as we stand on the precipice of realizing our own goal of 35 GW of new storage deployed by 2025. Together, our collective visions of the future will result in a better world through a more resilient, efficient, sustainable, and affordable electricity grid.

      Enabling Energy Storage to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

      Energy storage is an enabling technology. At its most simple, energy storage enables electricity to be saved for use at a later time, when and where it is most needed. This creates efficiencies and capabilities for the electric grid—including the ability to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Increasing storage deployment will enable new and broader opportunities for a cleaner supply mix, as well as enable the better use of existing generation. In addition, storage increases the capacity of the grid to integrate more clean and distributed energy resources.
