Investment tax credit (ITC) incentives for energy storage have been included in the US House of Representatives’ chief tax-writing committee, along with extensions to the solar ITC and reintroduction of a solar production tax credit (PTC).
US national Energy Storage Association (ESA) members voted to approve a merger with the American Clean Power Association, starting a “powerful new chapter for energy storage,” according to ESA Interim CEO Jason Burwen.
A subcommittee of the US House Committee on Appropriations has approved more than a billion dollars in support for developing energy storage deployment, research and manufacturing in a funding bill for the 2021 Fiscal Year.
