PG&E ponders large-scale energy storage

The Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) of California has announced its intention to issue an Energy Storage Request for Information (RFI), theRenewable + Law Blog reports. The purpose of the RFI – according to the post – is to get the skinny on utility-scale, dispatchable and flexible storage resources.

The aim, apparently, is to evaluate the energy storage solutions on offer, their manufacturers, and costs, presumably with a view to future investment, although the company has not stated this directly. If you are interested in participating, PG&E will also be launching a website next week, which will list the questions that will appear on the RFI. In addition, you can submit comments or questions by mailing: EnergyStorage@pge.com.
