Why New York State?
3 GW of Storage for the Grid by 2030
Under the leadership of Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York State has put in place a sweeping set of policies that, taken together, will lead to nation-leading reductions in carbon emissions, deployment of renewable energy and ‘greening’ of the electricity grid. Recognizing the need for storage to support statewide goals for renewable energy deployment, the State has set a mandate to deploy 3 GW of storage for the grid by 2030.
In support of this policy, the State has set in motion a number of policies and initiatives in support of storage development and deployment. NY-BEST has been a partner with the State in the development of these important initiatives throughout its ten year history and will remain actively engaged as future initiatives are shaped and rolled out.
A Global Leader
New York State is home to a wide array of battery and energy storage businesses and a highly skilled workforce. The State is also an international leader in the science of battery materials with research groups at numerous state and private universities across the State.
New York further provides strong support for storage through NYSERDA and Empire State Development that together support technology development/deployment and business/economic development activities.
Partnership with NY-BEST
In partnership with NY-BEST, New York State provided funding that led to the creation of a strong energy storage ecosystem that includes:
Through these policies and investments—first in creating NY-BEST and dedicating funds for R&D directed at energy storage activities, followed by investments in the storage ecosystem, New York State is well positioned to emerge as a global leader in battery and energy storage research and development and deployment.
