How does a battery manufacturer become eligible for the program? Do you have an application form for technology providers? Who should we get our preferred technology vendors in touch with?
Please have the battery operator, including the manufacturer, contractor, or TPO complete the New Technologies Request form, found on the energy storage webpage and at the following link: https://energystoragect.com/contractor-resources/. That request form will be reviewed to determine if the battery energy storage system (BESS) meets the minimum technical requirements and is able to move forward with integration with the Distributed (Energy) Resource Management System (DRMS for UI, DERMS for Eversource). Once accepted, the battery manufacturer will then be responsible for working with the DRMS/DERMS platform managers to complete integration.
