Under a partnership with GTM, EQ Research has compiled a mound of data related to state legislation addressing energy storage. This data, available via GTM Squared, provides an overview of the 92 bills relating to energy storage that were introduced in 28 U.S. states in 2015. The bills are categorized by what they aim (or aimed) to achieve with respect to energy storage. The majority of the 92 bills pertain to tax credits, energy planning, or RPS/EERS policies, while others pertain to grid modernization, property taxes, and other incentives or mandates. The outcomes of these bills are also provided. Notably, as many as four dozen bills could be carried over into 2016.
