Posted: May 29, 2014 - 19:00 / ERCOT / ESA Filings

The Energy Storage Association (ESA) appreciates the opportunity to comment on the proposed services resulting from the work of the Future Ancillary Services Team.  ESA has actively participated ineach FAST meeting and worked with staff and other stakeholders in the development of the new proposed suite of Ancillary Services. Although ERCOT staff has done tremendous work in putting together the pieces of these services, ESA provides the following comments which we request be addressed in any draft NPRR that is proposed as part of this process.

As background, the ESA is an industry trade association that was established over 20 years ago to foster the development and commercialization of energy storage technologies. Since then, its mission has been the promotion, development and commercialization of competitive and reliable energy storage delivery systems for use by electricity suppliers and their customers.  ESA members represent a diverse group of entities, including electric utilities, energy service companies, independent power producers, technology developers involved with advanced batteries, flywheels, thermal and compressed air energy storage, pumped hydro, supercapacitors and component suppliers, such as power conversion systems. ESA’s members also include researchers who are committed to advancing the state-of-the-art in energy storage solutions.
