New York Energy Storage Roadmap
The purpose of this New York Energy Storage Roadmap is to provide a reference document to all stakeholders in the growth of energy storage in New York. Its objective is to identify the state’s specific needs and to recommend potential strategies to meet the challenges of expanding the development, manufacturing and deployment of energy storage in New York. It is intended to enable industry, academic, and government participants to plan ahead as they put in place investments,legislation, business plans, research programs, teaming arrangements and commercial cooperative ventures.
Creation of this roadmap was spearheaded by NY-BEST and was initiated with a workshop held at NY-BEST’s “Capture the Energy 2012” conference in Troy, NY on March 7-8, 2012. A group of 45 experts convened and discussed the development of a statewide roadmap for the energy storage industry. Following the workshop, the present document was developed with support from the contributions and comments of a diverse set of stakeholders in the New York energy storage community.
