ESA Initial Comment to NY PSC on Utilities' Benefit-Cost Analysis Handbooks

Posted: September 6, 2016 - 12:49 / NY / ESA Filings

ESA submitted its comments in response to the New York Public Service Commission’s (“NY PSC”) request for comments in the above-referenced matter.

Since its inception 26 years ago, the ESA has promoted the development and commercialization of competitive and reliable energy storage delivery systems for use by electricity suppliers and their customers. ESA’s over 180 member companies comprise a diverse group of electric sector stakeholders, including utilities, independent power producers, manufacturers of advanced technologies -- such as batteries, flywheels, thermal energy storage, compressed air energy storage, supercapacitors, and other technologies -- component suppliers, and system integrators. ESA members have deployed more than 800 MW of non-hydro energy storage on the nation’s electric grids.

ESA generally agrees with the comments of the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium (NY-BEST). ESA looks forward to working with the NY PSC and other interested participants in this and related proceedings to ensure that New York continues to promote distribution system planning and market transformation while ensuring least cost to ratepayers.
