The Consortium was created to assess and maximise the greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction potential of electricity storage technologies. The group’s goal is to create an open-source, third-party-verified methodology to quantify the GHG benefits of certain grid-connected energy storage projects, and to ultimately help add a tool for organisations to create credible progress toward their net zero emissions goals.

“As energy storage technologies are poised for exponential growth, it’s imperative that we are cognisant of the greenhouse gas emissions generated by the use of such technologies” said John Rohde, CEO of RES in the Americas. “The Consortium is designed to help quantify the impacts of such technology and give us the ability to grow this technology in a sustainable way. We’re incredibly honored to join this group and offer our help in any way we can.”

In addition to RES, more than 20 other companies have signed on to the Consortium’s advisory committee, including leading technology companies, emissions data providers, investors, storage developers and service providers, and non-governmental organisations among others.

Members include:

3Degrees Group, Inc., Akamai Technologies, Clearloop, Equilibrium Energy, Fluence, General Motors, GlidePath Power Solutions, Habitat Energy, Hannon Armstrong, Jupiter Power, Longroad Energy, Marathon Capital, Microsoft, Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners, RES Group, Rivian, Rowan Digital Infrastructure, Stem, Tabors Caramanis Rudkevich, TimberRock, UBS Asset Management, and WattTime.
