to Utility Dive, “[i]n 2019, five states and Puerto Rico, adopted

federal government’s continued changes to climate and other environmental
policies, and the election of eleven new Democratic governors in
November 2018, with many of them making clean energy a priority.”
to Utility Dive, energy storage will be accelerated by user adoption and
technology developments in 2020, as people and organizations want to ensure
that renewables have a chance at the energy market. According
to Utility Dive, “[r]egulators are increasingly looking at energy storage
as a necessary component to achieve their objectives regarding the future of
to Utility Dive, a key court case regarding the ongoing
integration of storage into energy markets is “in the D.C. Circuit Court of
Appeals, where states, utilities, and energy trade groups are challenging
FERC’s February 2018 order allowing distributed
energy storage to participate in wholesale markets.”
to Utility Dive, “[s]ome 50% of storage installations in the U.S. are distributed,
either on the distribution grid or behind-the-meter.” This case could not only be ground breaking,
but shape our energy market and the viability of renewables for years to come. According
to Utility Dive, the growing involvement from utilities with storage is
part of an increasing push to expand technology within the sector.
