Business Development Opportunities for Members

CESA brings together the entire energy storage ecosystem, creating dialogues and venues for buyers to meet technology solution providers and developers, and ultimately lead to deal-making.  

OPPORTUNITY CREATION

US STorage by numbers.JPG

CESA creates market conditions that allow for procurement opportunities that make engineering and financial sense to our members.  We provide education to key decision makers through events and public forums so that they can yield bankable success for our developers. We also cultivate energy storage champions in key jurisdictions, including the three major California Investor Owned Utilities (IOUs)- Pacific Gas & Electric, San Diego Gas & Electric, and Southern California Edison, as well as public bodies such as the California Public Utilities Commission and the California Legislature.

PROCUREMENT NOTIFICATIONS

CESA disseminates Request for Proposal (RFP) opportunities to our members and hosts forums such as our Annual Members Meeting to allow for open dialogue between members and utility energy storage planners and buyers.

OPEN FEEDBACK FACILITATION

CESA provides an open conduit to our members that allows constructive and open feedback to buyers or utilities on bids or policies related to energy storage and helps manage the concerns of our members when they arise.

INVESTING IN CALIFORNIA MEANS INVESTING IN OTHER MARKETS, TOO

California is the beachhead market for the rest of the United States when it comes to the electricity sector. In addition to being the US state with the single largest potential for energy storage procurement, many states adopt California best practices and look to California developers and technology providers for leadership.
