1. Storage is key to expanded deployment of renewables and, interestingly, to new transportation.

 

I'm really happy with this mandate and want to see our state continue to lead in energy technologies and renewables.

However, we still suck at transportation compared to other regions and need to deploy more EVs and electric mass transit.

Doing this makes the challenge of more renewable generation that much harder, so storage is really going to help in achieving both goals.

While not a big fan of batteries as the solution, they can be strategically deployed where most useful in the grid, and are scalable unlike pumped hydro which is necessarily large in scale and only works where there are changes in elevation.
