NY-BEST is working with NYSERDA on an initiative to reduce soft costs for distributed energy storage resources. NYSERDA’s goal with the program is to help residents, businesses, local governments, utilities, and communities see energy storage as a viable and cost effective option for reducing peak load, increasing resilience, and utilizing clean energy efficiently. Through this program, NYSERDA and its partners will provide resources and technical assistance that will develop and implement comprehensive strategies to reduce distributed energy storage soft costs.
The MESA Standards Alliance publishes open, non-proprietary specifications and information models that utilities, software developers and hardware manufacturers use to achieve interoperability among grid-scale energy storage components, as well as between utility control centers and energy storage systems.
This report was commissioned by NYSERDA, with the research being performed by EMI Consulting and Industrial Economics, Inc. The report examines the global market for energy storage technologies, and how the market is maturing. Once conclusions about the global market are drawn the report begins to focus specifically on New York State's energy storage industry. The report indicates that, on a per capita basis, New York's energy storage industry trails only California in size.
