Energy Storage Association's 2017 Policy Forum

  • National Press Club 529 14th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20045 United States (map)

2017 is a critical year for energy policy. The new Administration and Congress bring with it a new focus and new opportunities. Impending transitions at FERC, DOE, EPA, and other agencies have significant ramifications for the continued growth of energy storage. As the power sector continues its transformation, regional markets and states are driving the energy dialogue, creating new and innovative market opportunities for competitive energy storage systems.

Featuring nationally-recognized policymakers and energy thought leaders, ESA's Policy Forum convenes a select audience of stakeholders from across the energy ecosystem - including state and federal regulators, policymakers, storage industry members, utility decision makers, and power sector stakeholders.

At the 2016 Energy Storage Policy Forum, keynotes addresses by NYSERDA’s Richard Kauffman and Senator Martin Heinrich topped a day of discussion on storage in wholesale market operations, PUC activities, state legislation, and future tax regimes. Since then, over a dozen states have undertaken policy activities on energy storage, FERC has opened several storage-related dockets, and several bills have been filed in Congress.

The 2017 Policy Forum promises to build on these exciting developments to help guide one of the most interesting and important conversations in the electric sector today.
