9to5 Mac covered AEE's comments on FERC's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) to make wholesale electricity markets competetive. From the article:
An energy trade associate that includes Apple has expressed its support for a proposal from the U.S. energy regulator that would make it easer to participate in wholesale markets for energy storage and distributed energy resources.
The trade association, known as Advanced Energy Economy, hopes that the removal of barriers on energy storage at the regulatory level will make it easier and cheaper to store energy. In addition to Apple, other members of the Advanced Energy Economy association are Johnson Controls, Schneider Electric, GE, energy storage maker AES, and solar giants SunPower and First Solar.
