Key policy announcements in July:
- United Kingdom regulator, Ofgem, is aiming to change generation licensing to eradicate the double-charging of storage assets. This will be achieved by the addition of a formal definition of energy storage to the regulatory framework and requiring information from the provider or operator of energy storage systems.
- New York utilities, Consolidated Edison (ConEd) and subsidiary Orange and Rockland (O&R) has issued a joint Request for Proposals (RFP) to procure 310 MW of energy storage. The utilities will be splitting the capacity 300 MW to ConEd and the remaining 10 MW to O&R. As part of the RFP the contracted systems must be installed and operational by the end of 2022.
