Our Partners

Friends of CESA are non-member partner organizations that support CESA's mission.

The China Energy Storage Alliance is China's first and only non-profit, member-based energy storage association. With the goal of promoting healthy growth in renewable energy through the use of competitive and reliable energy storage systems, the CNESA works with the Chinese government to drive policies and spread awareness of the benefits that energy storage can provide to the grid. We also encourage communication and facilitate business between the government and the private sector.

The Energy Storage Association is an international trade association established to foster development and commercialization of energy storage technologies. The membership includes utilities, equipment manufacturers, national laboratories, system designers and academia using the ESA as the leading technical forum to promote a better understanding of the benefits of energy storage in an electricity grid. The ESA is organized as a 501 (c) (6) trade association with Headquarters in Washington, D.C. For more information about the ESA please visit their web site.

India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) was launched in 2012 to assess the market potential of Energy Storage Technologies in India, through an active dialogue and subsequent analysis among the various stakeholders to make the Indian industry and power sector aware of the tremendous need for Energy Storage & Microgrids in the very near future. IESA anticipates India to become a 15-20GW market for advanced energy storage technologies by 2020.  See the IESA website for more information.

Joint Venture: Silicon Valley Network is a nonprofit, public-private partnership based in San Jose, California.  Established in 1993, Joint Venture provides analysis and action on issues affecting our region's economy and quality of life.  The organization brings together established and emerging leaders - from business, government, academia, labor and the broader community - to spotlight issues and work toward innovative solutions.Through Joint Venture's Climate Prosperity initiative, the organization holds Silicon Valley’s annual Energy Storage Symposium.

The Texas Energy Storage Alliance is a diverse and technology neutral coalition of energy storage technology product and services companies and allies pursuing an open and fair legal and regulatory environment in the Texas markets.  TESA is working to expand the role of storage in the Texas market by advocating for fair competition for all storage technologies.TESA recently published a White Paper that summarizes a number of energy storage issues in the ERCOT.
