Energy storage technologies enable energy produced from renewable sources, such as solar and wind, to be stored and released when customers need power most. As such, energy storage solutions will be critical in achieving clean energy, climate change, and clean energy-related economic development goals. In both the United States and India, state-level actions can be key to opening markets and opportunities for energy storage. In this technical workshop, Indian State Nodal Agencies and U.S. State Energy Offices are invited to learn about the current landscape of energy storage technologies as well as the policy and planning strategies that can use to advance this critical technology.
I. Opening Remarks
II. Overview: The State of Play in Energy Storage Technology and Policy
III. U.S. State Case Studies: Assessments and Policymaking in Energy Storage
IV. Questions, Discussion, and Wrap-Up
About This Event: This workshop is being organized as part of a partnership among the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Association of Renewable Energy Agencies of States (AREAS), and the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO), with the goal of promoting knowledge exchange among U.S. and Indian subnational energy policymakers. It is supported by the SED Fund. The intended audience for this workshop includes members of AREAS, India’s State Nodal Agencies, and members of NASEO, the governor-designated State and Territory Energy Offices in the United States.
