GTM: 10 US states have energy storage pipelines greater than 100MW

Danielle Ola for Energy Storage News:  According to the latest GTM Research figures, energy storage is coming into its own and is no longer confined to a handful of US states. 21 states now have 20MW of storage projects proposed, in construction or deployed. Further, 10 states have pipelines of more than 100MW.

Although California has traditionally been the US frontrunner in energy storage, 2.5GW of front-of-meter storage projects have been tracked outside of the Golden State. Texas, Hawaii, Ohio and Illinois are among the top states for energy storage procurement; signifying that the movement is not just confined to California.

According to GTM’s new Energy Storage Data Hub, states across the nation now have 140 policies and regulations (pending or in place) between them, concerning front-of-meter energy storage. For example, New York City became the first city to set an official energy storage target, with Massachusetts following suit earlier this year, and Oregon being the third state to do so. In addition, just this month, regulators in Washington created a draft policy on energy storage's treatment by investor-owned utilities (IOUs).  Full Article:
