Energy Storage in the Northeast: Past, Present, and Future
Across the Northeast, states have been exploring how energy storage can help them reach their clean energy and climate goals. From MassCEC and the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources’ (DOER) Advancing Commonwealth Energy Storage to similar programs in Vermont, Maine, and Connecticut, Northeast states are proving that storage will be a key part of the energy system of the future. NECEC is convening industry leaders and policy experts for an event on May 12 to review what we’ve learned from efforts to deploy energy storage projects and how we can encourage future growth in the Northeast storage market. This event will explore which energy storage demonstration projects in the Northeast were most successful and where the region’s storage market is headed.
