ESA directly advocates on behalf of the U.S. energy storage industry to Congress and across federal agencies. Through educational briefings, meetings with officials and legislators, and policy advice, ESA seeks to make the U.S. energy storage industry a national priority.
In Congress, ESA works engages with the relevant committees of jurisdiction (e.g., tax, energy, infrastructure, R&D) and Member offices to support the introduction and advancement of legislation that unlocks greater investment and hiring in the U.S. storage industry. In the Administration, ESA engages with the White House and the Departments of Energy, Defense, Commerce, Treasury, and other agencies as appropriate to enhance public investments in energy storage innovation, deployment, and promotion.
ESA engages with officials at the White House and across the Departments to educate on energy storage technologies markets and inform federal activities promoting energy storage.
