Massachusetts Energy Storage Study Details Potential to Reduce Energy Costs and Meet Energy Challenges
Massachusett’s released a comprehensive report in September 2016, State of Charge, that details the value of deploying energy storage in Massachusetts and a roadmap of policy recommendations for growing the energy storage market and industry.
The report found that the addition of energy storage to the state’s diverse energy portfolio could realize hundreds of millions of dollars in cost savings for Massachusetts ratepayers, shave the impacts of peak demand on the state’s energy infrastructure, and reduce carbon emissions by better integrating renewable resources into Massachusetts’ energy infrastructure. State of Charge was commissioned as part of the Administration’s $10 million Energy Storage Initiative, aimed at making Massachusetts a national leader in energy storage.
Energy Storage Canada member Customized Energy Solutions was the lead consultant on the study and included Sustainable Energy Advantage, Daymark, and Alevo Analytics.
