Policy Statement: Dual-use Energy Storage Serving Both Transmission and Energy Market Services Functions

In this document, the U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA) outlines its official principles and policy positions regarding dual-use energy storage resources serving both a transmission function, also known as “storage-as-transmission” and an energy market services function. ESA’s principles reflect the fundamental values that we seek to uphold in our policy and regulatory advocacy. ESA’s policy positions reflect specific matters that we will work to operationalize through laws, administrative rules, programs, and other policy or regulatory activities. The principles and policy positions presented herein are interdependent and, as such, ESA intends that the following principles and policy positions be referenced as a whole and not in part.
