New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo this month announced an ambitious plan for deploying energy storage, a technology that can mitigate renewable power’s most persistent problem: how to use it when the sun isn't shining or the wind isn't blowing.
“This is the clearest and most ambitious policy signal the energy storage market has seen on the East Coast,” said Jason Burwen, policy and advocacy director of the Energy Storage Association, a trade group for the industry.
