US Energy Storage Caucus Launched to Educate Congress
May 9, 2017
The Energy Storage Association (ESA) said that Collins and Takano were joined for the launch by executives from leading utilities, developers, and manufacturers of storage technologies, including AES Energy Storage, S&C Electric, Stem Inc., and National Grid.
In addition, the caucus will periodically brief members of Congress on how energy storage is reshaping the way electricity is generated, distributed, and consumed, and how policy can remove impediments to greater use of battery storage.
"We need bipartisan solutions to help address our aging energy infrastructure," Collins said in a statement. “Energy storage technology will grow our economy and make sure American businesses can compete around the globe.”
