The energy industry is shifting fundamentally, and energy storage is at the epicenter of this change. To open and accelerate markets we encourage policies in place to allow energy storage to participate in the market, be compensated for the values it contributes to the grid, and hold open the opportunities for diverse ownership and operational stakeholders. With its members, ESA has developed a set of policy statements and issue briefs that support its mission and hold true to its core principles.
