23. Because the goal is to mandate storage requirements for their grid.

If you are going to be defining storage requirements, there's a ginormous difference between mandating 1.3 GW, to be sustainable for 10 minutes, or 1.3 GW, to be sustainable for an hour, or 1.3 GW, to be sustainable for 12 hours, etc.

In that entire document, I have no idea what kind of use case they're going after. Maybe they all know, and assume anybody else reading their document knows too.

Could be just me, but I like to think people in an organization like that would be rigorous enough to know that storage has units of energy = power X time, not just power.
