Energy storage deployment policy. 1. As used in this section 7 "qualified energy storage system" shall mean commercially available 8 technology that is capable of absorbing energy, storing it for a period 9 of time, and thereafter dispatching the energy using mechanical, chemi- 10 cal, or thermal processes to store energy that was generated at one time 11 for use at a later time. 12 2. By December thirty-first, two thousand eighteen, the commission 13 shall, in consultation with the New York state energy research and 14 development authority [ and], the Long Island power authority, and the 15 federally designated electric bulk system operator for New York state, 16 after a hearing held on notice, establish by order, rules and regu- 17 lations, both a two thousand thirty energy storage goal for the state 18 and a deployment policy to support that goal.
