Energy storage in electricity markets is on the rise, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is weighing in with new rules that could change deployment of storage and distributed energy resources across the country.

New energy storage technologies are increasingly connecting to the electric grid, but it’s not clear that current rules in electricity markets are designed to help storage and new distributed energy resources (DER) participate as fully as other generation.  The federal government’s electricity market regulator, FERC, has issued a notice with proposed rules that could create new opportunities for deployment and investment but also raise questions for stakeholders to address.
