Law 360: A Path to NY's Energy Storage Goal

Danielle Mettler-LaFeir, counsel, had her article “A Path to NY’s Energy Storage Goal” published by Law360. The full article can be located below.

“On June 21, 2018, the New York State Research and Development Authority, or NYSERDA, in conjunction with the New York State Department of Public Service, issued the Energy Storage Roadmap for public review and comment. Its purpose is to identify recommendations on how New York can meet its energy storage goal of 1,500 megawatts by 2025 established by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in his 2018 State of the State address, and to assist the New York State Public Service Commission, or NYSPSC, in establishing New York’s 2030 energy storage goal anticipated to be set by the end of 2018.

The road map is part of the broader suite of policies and initiatives of New York’s comprehensive energy policy, known as Reforming the Energy Vision, or REV. The goals of REV include generating 50 percent of New York’s electricity with renewables and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent by 2030. The road map, in conjunction with REV and the Clean Energy Fund, or CEF, is intended to shift New York’s energy market from one based on large and discrete, mostly fossil-fueled, supply resources to one with increased distributed energy resources, or DERs, and a greater use of renewables.”
