The Energy Storage Association (ESA) is the national trade association dedicated to energy storage, working toward a more resilient, efficient, sustainable and affordable electricity grid – as is uniquely enabled by energy storage. With more than 160 members, ESA represents a diverse group of companies, including independent power producers, electric utilities, energy service companies, financiers, insurers, law firms, installers, manufacturers, component suppliers and integrators involved in deploying energy storage systems around the globe.
The Bundesverband Energiespeicher (BVES) [German Energy Storage Association] represents the interests of companies from the most diverse sectors, which have the common goal of development and marketing as well as the operation of energy storage in the areas of electricity, heat and mobility.
The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) located in Brussels, Belgium, is the leading member-supported association representing organisations active across the entire energy storage value chain. EASE. supports the deployment of energy storage to support the cost-effective transition to a resilient, low-carbon, and secure energy system. EASE was established in 2011 and currently represents almost 40 members including utilities, technology suppliers, research institutes, distribution system operators, and transmission system operators. Together, EASE members have significant expertise across all major storage technologies and applications. This allows us to generate new ideas and policy recommendations that are essential to build a regulatory framework that is supportive of storage.
