ESA Statement on Build Back Better Framework

“The U.S. is at forefront of an incredible opportunity to decarbonize and fortify our power system, with energy storage leading the way. The Build Back Better Framework announced today by President Biden would make the necessary investments in clean energy and energy storage to meet the goals of decarbonizing our power system, making it resilient to extreme weather, and creating good-paying jobs. The investment tax credit for stand-alone energy storage is critical to accelerating the pace of storage deployment on the electric grid. Combined with new manufacturing incentives available for batteries and federal procurement of next-generation long duration storage, the Build Back Better Framework will supercharge efforts to rapidly transition to clean energy while building a robust energy storage supply chain here at home. The U.S. Energy Storage Association urges Members of Congress to unite behind this once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform our economy and create prosperity for our clean energy future.” – Jason Burwen, Interim CEO, U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA)
