The energy storage market in the Northeast continues to ramp up with more states setting ambitious renewable goals. With the increased sense of urgency, new programs and policies are being put into place to help fast track the deployment of storage projects. There is a lot of confusion with developers on what exactly these programs can do for their projects, the limitations they face, and how they are utilized in the market. We hosted a webinar that helped clear up the misconceptions that developers have in the Northeast and dove deep into some of the most used incentive programs and policies within New York and Massachusetts that are helping monetize energy storage. 

New York is leading the nation in climate change targets right now and has done an excellent job in implementing policies and incentive programs that are going to help reach those goals. In this section of the webinar, our Manager of Technology and Product Operations, and New York market specialist Kevin Mulvey and Senior Director of Policy in the Northeast at Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), Dave Gahl gave a detailed overview of where the market stands today, the programs that are driving energy storage, an outlook on customer-sited storage, and a complete policy overview of solar and storage in New York.
