In a briefing held this week, by Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) and the Clean Energy and Technology Staff Association (CETSA), the state of play for renewable energy and energy storage technology in the United States was discussed.

The meeting – as reported by EESI – “provided an overview of innovations in renewable energy and energy storage, not only in solar and wind power, but also in geothermal power, hydropower, and sustainable biomass. Briefing panelists shared first-hand knowledge from federal agencies and industry to provide the most up-to-date information on the role of renewable energy in the country’s energy mix.”
