We just held this year’s NY-BEST Technology Conference in Syracuse and the level of excitement was the highest ever for this event. There were many great presentations and posters about the latest advances in energy storage technology, but there was a broader reason for the excitement. Events in the world at large are driving a growing need for energy storage.
Recently, we held a webinar on the subject of microgrids that featured three companies heavily involved in that business. Microgrids are a subset of the broader field of application of distributed energy storage.
We at NY-BEST are very excited by our recent announcement regarding the BEST Testing and Commercialization Center in Rochester. This center was an important part of the strategic plan presented in our New York State Energy Storage Roadmap. Establishing such a center provides key capabilities needed to accelerate the commercial deployment of energy storage technologies in New York.
