Policy Profile

Energy Storage Standard

Policy description:

Two major trends have enabled increased deployment of energy storage: declining costs and technological advances. State policy can help maximize these benefits through a combination of establishing a framework for easy integration of energy storage into the grid and establishing a marketplace that monetizes the benefits of energy storage for cost-effective investment. For more information, see the full policy brief.
