Statement from ESA CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman on the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis “Solving the Climate Crisis” Report

“ESA commends the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis for continuing to prioritize meaningful recommendations that include support for a stand-alone investment tax credit for energy storage. Energy storage is an enabling technology that aligns with the Committee’s focus on grid resilience, achieving net zero emissions, and bringing clean and advanced energy sources to our electric grid. We thank the Select Committee for understanding the importance of a storage ITC to foster resilient, efficient, sustainable and affordable electric service. ESA encourages Congress to pass legislation that includes a storage ITC with a direct payment option to support economic recovery and make the American economy more resilient.”
