The groups will collaborate on communication efforts, events and policy activities promoting solar energy and storage.
“Large scale deployment of renewable energy is proving that we can achieve high levels of renewable generation without sacrificing reliability,” said Arno Harris, CEO of Recurrent Energy and chairman of the SEIA board. “Focus on development of electricity storage will only further solidify solar in the mainstream energy mix.”
Energy storage accounts for 24,000 MWh of installed storage capacity, a majority of which is for pumped-storage hydro. As of May 21, the U.S. has 7,700 MW of installed capacity.
