CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman’s Statement on Nevada’s Storage Deployment Target

“Nevada has distinguished itself as an energy storage leader after becoming the 6th state to establish a storage deployment target. Together, Nevada, Massachusetts, California, New York, New Jersey and Oregon have laid out a cumulative target of at least 7,575 MW across the nation by 2030,” said Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA). “By setting a target of 1,000 MW by 2030 for Nevada,  along with interim targets over the coming decade, Nevada officials are sending long-term signals for industry investment and a credible pathway for achievement. ESA applauds Nevada for its leadership and looks forward to supporting the efforts of officials and stakeholders to make the state’s electric system more resilient, efficient, sustainable and affordable.”
