What We Do

NY-BEST serves as the focal point for energy storage industry-related activities. We do this by:

  • Acting as an authoritative resource on energy storage, proactively communicating energy storage related news and information, and facilitating connections amongst stakeholders;
  • Advancing and accelerating the commercialization process for energy storage technologies, from research and development, to products and widespread deployment;
  • Educating policymakers and stakeholders about energy storage and advocating on behalf of the energy storage industry; and
  • Promoting New York’s world-class intellectual and manufacturing capabilities and providing access to markets to grow the energy storage industry in New York.

Why this is important

Commercial, cost-effective energy storage technology is poised to be a game-changer for two of the world’s largest and most essential industries: electricity and transportation.

Reliable energy storage will change how vehicles are powered and how the entire electricity grid functions. Energy storage products are key to hybrid and electric vehicles and will make possible the effective widespread use of wind and solar energy. 

By transforming these trillion-dollar industries, energy storage technologies will produce environmental benefits, reduce energy costs and act as powerful economic drivers.
