FREE WEBINAR: Energy Storage Outlook--Progress, Challenges and the Road Ahead
In this one-hour webinar, the NY-BEST team provides an overview of highlights from 2012 and sets the stage for 2013's opportunities, challenges and activities for New York's energy storage industry. 2013 held a flurry of activity related to the energy storage industry in New York State and globally. From the production of the New York Energy Storage Roadmap and Economic Impact Study, to the New York Energy Highway and the work of the three commissions set up by Governor Cuomo after Superstorm Sandy, NY-BEST staff and our members worked together to highlight the benefits and importance of energy storage technologies. Coupled with an array of webinars, conferences and electronic communications throughout the year, these efforts set the stage for what we expect will be a very important year for energy storage in New York State.
