Energy Storage Association’s Comments on CT DEEP Proceedings for Demonstration Projects for Grid-Side System Enhancement to Integrate Distributed Energy Resources Pursuant to P.A. 15-5

Posted: October 13, 2015 - 05:00 / ESA Filings

The Energy Storage Association (“ESA”), submitted the attached Comments in response to the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection’s (“DEEP”) request for comments on Proceedings for Demonstration Projects for Grid-Side System Enhancement to Integrate Distributed Energy Resources Pursuant to P.A. 15-5.

The implementation of energy storage onto distribution systems will enable the integration of distributed energy resources (“DERs”), as well as improve resiliency and grid reliability in Connecticut. For the benefits of energy storage to be most effectively and usefully demonstrated in Connecticut, ESA recommends that such demonstration projects be competitively sourced.
