The California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA) is a membership-based advocacy group committed to advancing the role of energy storage in the electric power sector through policy, education, outreach, and research.
Our membership includes technology manufacturers, project developers, systems integrators, consulting firms, and other clean tech industry leaders.
We are technology and business model-neutral, and are supported solely by the contributions and coordinated activities of our members.
The China Energy Storage Alliance (CNESA) is the first and only non-profit, member-based energy storage association in China. The CNESA promotes healthy renewable energy growth through the use of competitive and reliable energy storage systems. We work with the Chinese government to drive policies and spread awareness of the benefits that energy storage can provide to the grid. We also encourage communication and facilitate business between the government and the private sector, domestically and internationally.
Our members consist of energy storage technology developers, renewable energy manufacturers, venture capital firms and energy storage research institutions. We aim to continuously communicate the most up-to-date market trends to our members through our annual white paper, monthly e-magazine, research reports, annual forum and bi-monthly saloons.
The India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) was launched in 2012 by Customized Energy Solutions to promote Energy Storage and Micro grid technologies and their applications in India. IESA does this by creating awareness among various stakeholders to make the Indian industry and power sector more competitive and efficient, and by promoting information exchange with the end users to assist with more informed decision making. IESA also provides insights to technology developers and system integrators on the policy landscape and business opportunities in India through frequent interaction with key stakeholders. With response received from the storage industry across the globe, the IESA is quickly gaining a strong foothold across various stakeholders and technology providers.
IESA – Knowledge Partner Network
To further the growth of awareness about storage and the application of storage to solve electricity system problems, the IESA has also launched the Knowledge Partner Network (IESA KPN) for an open and transparent information exchange that will assist with decision making. Proactive Indian state owned utilities and regulatory commissions, statutory central government bodies like power research institutes, leading power transmission utilities, Special Economic Zone (SEZ)/ townships, telecom towers and infrastructure industry, industries (metals, petroleum etc.), storage supply chain vendors / manufacturers, universities / research groups, hotel groups and other key market participants in the storage arena are actively taking part in this alliance to broaden the vision and help realize the key goal of the IESA.
The New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology (NY-BEST™) Consortium was created in 2010 to position New York State as a global leader in energy storage technology, including applications in transportation, grid storage, and power electronics.
