STATE OF NEW YORK ________________________________________________________________________ 8921--A Cal. No. 750 IN ASSEMBLY January 8, 2018 ___________ Introduced by M. of A. PAULIN, OTIS -- Multi-Sponsored by -- M. of A. ENGLEBRIGHT -- read once and referred to the Committee on Energy -- advanced to a third reading, passed by Assembly and delivered to the Senate, recalled from the Senate, vote reconsidered, bill amended, ordered reprinted, retaining its place on the order of third reading AN ACT to amend the public service law and the public authorities law, in relation to establishing the energy storage deployment policy The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem- bly, do enact as follows: 1 Section 1. Section 74 of the public service law, as added by chapter 2 415 of the laws of 2017, is amended to read as follows: 3 § 74. Energy storage deployment [ program] policy. 1. [ (a)] As used in 4 this section "qualified energy storage system" shall mean commercially 5 available technology that is capable of absorbing energy, storing it for 6 a period of time, and thereafter dispatching the energy[ . A qualified7 energy storage system shall be cost-effective and either assist the8 integration of variable energy resources, reduce emissions of greenhouse9 gases, reduce demand for peak electrical generation, defer or substitute10 for an investment in generation, transmission, or distribution assets,11 or improve the reliable operation of the electrical transmission or12 distribution grid.13 (b) A qualified energy storage system shall do one or more of the14 following: (i) use] using mechanical, chemical, or thermal processes to 15 store energy that was generated at one time for use at a later time[ ;16 (ii) store thermal energy for direct use for heating or cooling at a17 later time in a manner that avoids the need to use electricity at that18 later time; (iii) use mechanical, chemical, or thermal processes to19 store energy generated from renewable resources for use at a later time;20 or (iv) use mechanical, chemical, or thermal processes to store energy21 generated from mechanical processes that would otherwise be wasted for22 delivery at a later time]. 23 2. [ Within ninety days of the effective date of this section, the24 commission shall commence a proceeding to establish the energy storage25 deployment program to encourage the installation of qualified energyEXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted. LBD10350-06-8A. 8921--A 2 1 storage systems. No later than January first, two thousand eighteen, the2 commission shall make a determination establishing a target for the3 installation of qualified energy storage systems to be achieved through4 two thousand thirty and programs that will enable the state to meet such5 target. The commission shall consult with the New York state energy6 research and development authority and the Long Island power authority7 in the preparation of such determination.] By December thirty-first, two 8 thousand eighteen, the commission shall, in consultation with the New 9 York state energy research and development authority and the Long Island 10 power authority, after a hearing held on notice, establish by order, 11 rules and regulations, both a two thousand thirty energy storage goal 12 for the state and a deployment policy to support that goal. The [ deter-13 mination] energy storage deployment policy shall include the following: 14 (a) [ The creation of the energy storage deployment program to be15 administered by the New York state energy research and development16 authority and the Long Island power authority;17 (b) Estimated annual expenditures associated with the program for each18 year commencing with calendar year two thousand eighteen and continuing19 through calendar year two thousand thirty;20 (c) Program designs that take the following into consideration:21 (1)] avoided or deferred costs associated with transmission, distrib- 22 ution, [ and/or] or generation capacity; 23 [ (2)] (b) minimization of peak load in constrained areas; [ and24 (3)] (c) systems that are connected to customer facilities and systems 25 that are directly connected to transmission and distribution facilities; 26 (d) cost-effectiveness; 27 (e) assisting the integration of variable-output energy resources; 28 (f) reducing emissions of greenhouse gases; 29 (g) reducing demand for peak electrical generation; and 30 (h) improving the reliable operation of the electrical transmission or 31 distribution systems; 32 (i) Annual reports on the achievements and effectiveness of the 33 [ program] policy to be submitted to the governor, the temporary presi- 34 dent of the senate, and the speaker of the assembly; and 35 [ (e)] (j) Such other issues deemed appropriate by the commission. 36 § 2. Section 1020-ii of the public authorities law, as added by chap- 37 ter 415 of the laws of 2017, is amended to read as follows: 38 § 1020-ii. Energy storage deployment [ program] policy. The authority 39 shall encourage the installation of qualified energy storage systems in 40 its service territory through implementation of the energy storage 41 deployment [ program] policy as set forth and defined in section seven- 42 ty-four of the public service law. 43 § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
