New York State Energy Storage Resources

New York State is becoming a  leading market for energy storage deployment and product development. New York has enacted a clean energy standard requiring that 50% of the State’s electricity will be from renewable energy by 2030 and it is leading the transformation of the electric grid to a cleaner more distributed and efficient system through the State’s renowned Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) Initiative.  This, coupled with significant investments in an energy storage ecosystem, are driving the State’s leadership in energy storage activity across the board.

New York is home to a rich and diverse network of resources for energy storage technology and product development including  world-class research institutions, dozens of university-based efforts, Brookhaven National Lab and the National Synchrotron Light Source II (with dedicated facilities for energy storage research), major corporate R&D centers and dozens of small and medium sized businesses working on a wide array of next generation storage technologies and applications. Coupled with  our specialized  and accessible facilities for battery prototyping, testing, commercialization and pilot manufacturing, New York offers an unmatched ecosystem  for companies seeking to  commercialize their storage innovations.

NY-BEST has worked with a variety of partners to develop and promote this energy storage ecosystem to the world. NY-BEST promotes the development of advanced battery and energy storage technologies developed by our members, unites battery and energy storage companies, researchers and labs to pursue common technology initiatives, and provides access to advanced battery and energy storage testing and characterization capabilities. NY-BEST also promotes the economic development of New York State as a center for energy storage technologies.

We are proud to highlight our valued partners in our “Capture New York’s Energy” Initiative which include:

Eastman Business Park, a Kodak business

Battery Prototyping Center at RIT

BEST Test and Commercialization Center with DNV GL

These partners offer  a few of the tremendous assets and resources New York has to offer the battery and energy storage industry, including battery prototyping at RIT, and battery and energy storage technology testing at the BEST Test and Commercialization Center, operated by DNV GL and digital pilot coating and pilot manufacturing capabilities operated by Kodak at Eastman Business Park.
