BCSE Response to FERC Decision on Grid Resiliency Pricing Proposal
Washington, DC – In response to the order released today by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in response to the grid resiliency pricing proposal, Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) President Lisa Jacobson made the following statement.
“The Council appreciates the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) review of the grid resiliency pricing proposal and looks forward to working with FERC, the Department of Energy and grid operators on FERC’s new proceeding to evaluate grid reliability and resiliency needs.
“Resiliency and reliability issues are paramount to the electric sector. The portfolio of currently available clean energy technologies and services in the energy efficiency, natural gas and renewable energy sectors – working with energy storage, demand response and micro-grids, among other technologies and services – is meeting the needs of the grid affordably and reliably today and can meet the needs of an evolving electric grid into the future.
“The members of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy offer their expertise to this new FERC effort.”
