Statement of ESA’s Interim CEO, Jason Burwen, on 2021 Introduction of the GREEN Act

“The U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA) applauds Chairman Thompson and members of the House Ways & Means Committee for prioritizing stand-alone energy storage for clean energy investment tax credit (ITC) eligibility in the GREEN Act, which was re-introduced today,” said Jason Burwen, Interim CEO of ESA. “Energy storage is central to America’s transition to a clean energy economy and enabling more resilient, efficient, sustainable, and affordable electric service for all. Making energy storage eligible for the ITC creates a level playing field for power sector investments while also accelerating jobs in storage deployment and manufacturing. That’s also why ESA joined a multi-sector coalition of 45 organizations in a letter today asking President Biden and Congressional leadership to include a stable, predictable and long-term tax platform for clean energy incentives, including an ITC for storage, in the earliest possible legislative vehicle this year. We look forward to working with the Biden Administration and Congress to support economic recovery through continued investments in energy storage deployment for a decarbonized, resilient power system.”
