This report investigates the barriers to more effective and efficient interconnection of distributed energy storage resources.
CEG submitted comments to the Massachusetts Energy Efficiency Advisory Council to express concern about potentially harmful proposed changes to the Massachusetts ConnectedSolutions program incentive rules.
This report highlights best practices, identifies barriers, and underscores the urgent need to expand state energy storage policymaking to support decarbonization in the US.
This report is intended as a guide for state energy agencies preparing to conduct cost-effectiveness evaluation for battery storage. It presents a benefit-cost analysis framework for battery storage and attempts to address many of the uncertainties state energy agencies may encounter.
Clean Energy Group and the Clean Energy States Alliance submitted comments to the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities on the New Jersey Energy Storage Incentive Program Straw Proposal.
CEG submitted comments in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Request for Information seeking public comment on core design aspects of the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund. CEG’s comments focus on the importance of providing technical assistance funding support through the GGRF, particularly in support of projects being developed by under-resourced organizations and in service of historically marginalized communities.
Allowing low-income-serving entities to take direct payment of a tax credit they would not otherwise be allowed to take in order to offset the cost of adding solar and storage, both for relief of energy burden and for resilience, could increase the amount of solar and storage on low-income single-family homes, effectively addressing a deficiency in the Inflation Reduction Act.
CEG submitted comments to the Massachusetts Energy Efficiency Advisory Council recommending that equity provisions be developed and implemented into the ConnectedSolutions program.
Comments submitted to the ICC as stakeholder input to its energy storage proceedings addressing cost-benefit valuation for energy storage.
Energy Storage for Winter Grid Reliability: How Batteries Became the Low-Cost Solution for Power Assurance in Massachusetts
Winter electric peaking capacity services are currently undervalued in the Massachusetts programs that provide battery customers with performance payments to supply power back to the grid at times of high demand.
