ALBANY — The Department of Public Service (Department) today issued the first “State of Storage” annual report announcing progress in reaching New York’s statewide energy storage goal of 3,000 megawatts (MW) by 2030, with an interim objective of deploying 1,500 MW by 2025. Energy storage enhances the efficiency of the electric grid through many different applications such as demand charge management, demand response, distribution system local reliability, firming large‐scale intermittent renewables, and wholesale market installed capacity and ancillary services, and supports New York’s Green New Deal, the most aggressive climate change program in the nation which puts the state on a path to economy-wide carbon neutrality.
