Energy Storage & Carbon Emissions

By Phill Feltham

Over the last several years, towns, cities, and states across the United States have developed policies and invested in efforts aimed at to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and their associated negative societal impacts. Businesses and private citizens have also become increasingly involved in making smarter, more efficient choices with regard to their individual use of energy.

Moreover, we are moving forward with greater national, coordinated efforts to develop strategies that address emissions from the power sector: one that harnesses the experience gained through these local approaches. Although carbon and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions may be reduced through a variety of strategies, energy storage systems can play a significant role in these efforts to achieve a cleaner, more efficient grid.
