Energy Storage in Massachusetts: What the Study Said, and What’s Next
October 27, 2016 @ 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Massachusetts leapt to the forefront of state energy storage policy with its recently released study, “State of Charge.” The study modeled the optimum amount of storage that could be placed on the Massachusetts grid (1.76 GW) and proposed a suite of policy recommendations for growing storage in the state to 600 MW by 2025. These recommendations include grant and rebate programs, regulatory and legislative changes, and the incorporation of storage into a number of existing clean energy programs such as the Next Generation Solar Incentive and the Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard.
This webinar featured an explanation of the study’s results and a discussion of what’s next as the state rolls out a host of new energy storage policy and program initiatives.
