Energy storage systems (ESS) are growing in popularity and present numerous benefits to consumers, including resilience in the face of extreme weather or other causes of power outages. ESS can also help the electric grid accommodate growing amounts of renewable energy, like solar and wind, by storing the energy from these variable sources for use when it is most needed. 

This page compiles resources to address code and technical challenges to ESS deployment.

SEAC has several working groups actively developing solutions to support the development and use of energy storage projects. They include the Storage Snapshot Working Group, the Storage Fire Detection Working Group, the ESS Standards Working Group, the Vehicle Impact Protection Working Group, and the National Electrical Code (NEC) Working Group.
