CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman’s Statement on the GREEN Act

“The U.S. Energy Storage Association greatly appreciates the House Ways & Means Committee for prioritizing stand-alone energy storage for ITC eligibility in the GREEN Act discussion draft,” said Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of ESA. “Energy storage is already demonstrating early stage capability to transform the way we generate, deliver and use electricity in the United States, and this common-sense policy will accelerate the transformation to a more resilient, efficient, sustainable and affordable electricity grid. Because of the bipartisan and bicameral support that the storage ITC enjoys, we strongly believe this is a policy Congress can agree to enact this year. We applaud Chairman Neal and Subcommittee Chairman Thompson for seeking a level playing field for storage, and we thank Representatives Doyle, Blumenauer, Buchanan, Rooney, Sanchez and more than forty other co-sponsors of the storage ITC legislation.”
