CEO Statement on Advancing Grid Storage Act (AGSA)

Statement from Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO, Energy Storage Association on the Advanced Grid Storage Act (AGSA):"

“We applaud the leadership of Senator Franken and Senator Heinrich for introducing the S.1851 Advancing Grid Storage Act (AGSA) in Congress. AGSA will provide assistance to state and local governments, smaller utilities, public power districts and rural cooperatives who seek to modernize their electric infrastructure with advanced energy storage systems. These advances will make the grid more efficient, sustainable, resilient and affordable, to the benefit of homes and businesses across the U.S.

“Investing in 21st century grid infrastructure will generate significant benefits to all electricity users. Energy storage has proven to be a reliable solution for many of the challenges we face in modernizing our grid infrastructure. AGSA is an important next step in modernizing the grid for even more Americans, and will ensure the U.S. continues to lead the world in the advanced energy storage industry – bringing jobs and investment to communities across the country.”
