Yesterday, Governor Kathy Hochul announced New York’s 2022 Energy Storage Roadmap, which charts a pathway to achieving an expanded energy storage target of 6 gigawatts by 2030, as she proposed in her 2022 State of the State address. The 2022 Energy Storage Roadmap, submitted by NYSERDA and the New York Department of Public Service (DPS) to the Public Service Commission (PSC) for consideration, proposes a comprehensive set of recommendations to expand New York’s energy storage programs to cost-effectively unlock the rapid growth of renewable energy across New York and bolster grid reliability and customer resilience. E3 supported the State Team with both short and long-duration energy storage modeling, including modeling cost-effective electricity sector portfolios that achieve the 6 GW by 2030 energy storage target. E3 also evaluated the potential for long-duration storage to replace firm capacity to satisfy New York’s reliability needs. E3’s analysis informs key Roadmap recommendations. E3’s Liz Mettetal, Kevin Steinberger, Kush Patel, Zach Tzavelis, Nate Grady, Vignesh Venugopal, and Charlie Gulian contributed to the modeling and analysis.
