#Minnesota Legislature prepares for the introduction of energy storage

Minnesota Legislature prepares for the introduction of energy storage Legislators in Minnesota have begun the first steps to establishing fair or optimal market conditions for the deployment of energy storage, setting out rules for determining the value of storage to the network. Last week, five Senators unanimously passed Senate File 100 (SF100) which will set … Continue reading #Minnesota Legislature prepares for the introduction of energy storage

Enabling storage integration through market-driven procurements

Enabling storage integration through market-driven procurements Rising renewables growth shows mandates and incentives for them work. But customer demand for renewables has not slowed, creating a need for more energy storage to stabilize the grid. That need for storage is estimated to be significantly bigger than current build-out plans, driven by existing policies, are likely … Continue reading Enabling storage integration through market-driven procurements
