Balducci Delivers Energy Storage Testimony

Patrick Balducci, a senior economist in PNNL's Energy Policy & Economics group, was recently invited to give testimony to the Oregon House Energy and Environment Committee. The March 17 meeting included coverage of House Bill 2193, which "directs electric companies, if authorized by Public Utility Commission, to procure one or more energy storage systems that have capacity to store specified amount of electricity."

Balducci, an expert in energy storage, joined PNNL in 2001. In addition to leading efforts at PNNL surrounding Washington State's Clean Energy Fund project, he serves as an Adjunct Faculty Member and Marylhurst University and as the Vice President and President-Elect of the Pacific Northwest Regional Economic Conference. During his testimony, Balducci discussed PNNL's energy storage research and involvement in Washington State's Clean Energy Fund projects.
