ESA CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman Praises the Passage of H.R. 4447 the Clean Economy Jobs and Innovation Act

“Today the U.S. House of Representatives moved definitively to elevate the priority of public innovation investments in energy storage,” said U.S. Energy Storage Association CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman. “By passing H.R. 4447, the Clean Economy Jobs and Innovation Act, numerous bipartisan proposals for promoting energy storage are moving forward, including increasing R&D and demonstration investments in energy storage technology, integrating storage across all DOE Energy offices, assisting rural customers with storage for resilience, and incorporating storage into public investments in transportation electrification and workforce development. ESA is pleased to support these efforts to ready the electric system for 21st century demands to provide resilient, efficient, sustainable, and affordable electric service. We encourage members of the Senate to swiftly advance their similar legislation this Congress.”
