Congress Reaches Compromise on Clean Energy Deal to be Attached to Government Funding Bill -

Why this is important: These measures provide much needed support for green technologies that are in early stages of development. Of particular interest are the measures funding R&D of long-duration energy storage systems for excess energy generated by wind and solar power. Right now, a major drawback for wind and solar energy is the difficulty in storing excess energy to use during times of low wind and sun. These measures will do a great deal in lifting that burden.
