Read the motion to intervene AEE filed in support of FERC's decision not to rehear Order 841 establishing rules for energy storage to participate in wholesale markets.

AEE filed a motion to intervene in D.C. District Court in support of FERC on a challenge to rehear Order 841 requiring RTOs/ISOs to establish rules allowing energy storage technology to participate in wholesale electricity markets. We worked together with our colleagues at SEIA on this filing.

FERC's Order 841-A denied requests for a rehearing and clarified some aspects of Order No. 841. FERC rejected arguments that including electric storage resources connected to the distribution system or located behind a customer’s meter within the scope of Order No. 841’s requirements intruded on states’ exclusive jurisdiction over local distribution facilities and retail sales and that states and utilities ought to be able to opt out of the rules allowing storage resources to participate in the markets.
