State policy and regulation is increasingly driving the conversation around energy advancement, and new competitive opportunities are evolving at a record pace. This panel brings together government and regulatory leaders from across the country to discuss policy that is unlocking new storage markets.

This session will bring greater clarity to the diverse state policies and programs that are pushing energy storage to the forefront. From new procurement target legislation in Massachusetts and enhanced IRP planning in Oregon, to new storage+solar programs and rate structure overhauls, storage is being integrated into the energy dialogue in dozens of states.

Building upon the lessons learned in IREC’s Charging Ahead: An Energy Storage Guide for Policymakers, this panel discussion will engage attendees in an interactive dialogue about how these best practices and policies are being put into effect today.
