Legislative actions in California are shaping the potential of energy storage to serve a greater role in future, as the state continues the transition to procuring more renewable energy from solar photovoltaic systems, according to Rebecca Feuerlicht, project manager of CSE’s Self-Generation Incentive Program. She gave a presentation on energy storage at the Intersolar North America conference in San Francisco on July 8.
CSE and the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) have issued a report on LA’s workforce needs in the clean tech and clean energy sectors.
The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources has selected CSE to administer a new incentive program aimed at increasing the number of zero-emission vehicles commonwealth residents own. The Massachusetts Offers Rebates for Electric Vehicles (MOR-EV) program will provide up to $2,500 for the purchase or lease of plug-in hybrid or electric vehicles (EVs).
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick unveiled the MOR-EV incentives at a press conference held March 27 when announcing a number of new state investments in programs designed to support alternative fuel vehicles (photo at left).
