Joel Meister was joined by Janice Lin, Executive Director of the California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA) and Robert Fleishman, Senior of Counsel, Morrison & Foerster LLP to discuss the value of solar and energy storage on a recent webinar sponsored by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).
Industry trade publication SNL was on hand to cover the key details in a recent article (paywall), including this quote from Meister:
Joel Meister, a legal fellow at Solar Grid Storage LLC, a Philadelphia-based company that specializes in connecting batteries to commercial photovoltaic projects, said interest in storage systems is growing because of increasing concerns about power outages from severe weather and a search within the industry for cost savings.
“With these things like cost reduction, emergency power, [and] grid stability ... we certainly think that financing these new technologies, these new applications, is a key component to ushering in the grid of the future,” Meister said.

Listen to a timely discussion on the recent regulatory changes for energy storage and how these changes will affect grid integration, solar energy expansion, and improvements to grid reliability. Both the FERC and CPUC have adopted new rules and procurement requirements to encourage energy storage as a resource, enhance power system operations, increase efficiency, and reduce costs.
