This summer, MISO will turn on the anticipated storage market model switch. It has been a long journey for storage companies and renewable developers to address climate change with battery technology. With so many twists and turns for storage at MISO, it is important that CEEM members not lose heart. CEEM and its members should become active at MISO stakeholder meetings and voice their concerns for additional aggregation market opportunities.
The energy and utilities industry continues to evolve by making investments in clean energy and related technologies.

It’s going to take a transformation in how we plan for the systems that distribute that power.
