Energy Storage has been compared to a Swiss Army Knife in its flexibility and utility to the electric grid. However, to make full use of the potential benefits that Energy Storage offers, you need to be aware of and navigate your way around potential legal impediments and understand the rules of markets that have not yet reached full maturity. This presentation will take a hard look at Energy Storage’s future promise vs. current reality. It will also share very recent developments that are changing energy storage markets today.
