REA counters that such a move would negatively impact businesses and consumers in the short-term as well as undermine confidence in future energy conservation and efficiency initiatives. The association believes long-term strategies around heat decarbonisation are also 'imperative', otherwise a policy gap will quickly emerge with the non-domestic RHI coming to an end and put the government's net-zero ambitions in 'serious jeopardy', according to the REA release.
The REA promotes renewable energy and clean technology industries -- biomass, biogas, waste-to-energy, energy storage, wind, solar, renewable transportation fuels and others -- to grow a sustainable industry and decarbonise society as part of a circular economy.

Electriq's flagship product line is the PowerPod, the industry-leading smart home battery backup system designed to save on electricity costs and protect against blackouts. The system includes a battery, hybrid battery/solar inverter, an energy meter, as well as a smart home energy software to manage electricity use and optimize efficiency. The PowerPod is modular and expandable up to three systems with three battery packs per system, giving installers and homeowners system design flexibility, with up to 16.5 kW of power and 99 kWh of battery storage.
The PowerPod 2, launched in late 2020, is the next-generation version of Electriq Power's industry-leading PowerPod family. This latest system is equipped with non-toxic, non-hazardous Lithium-Iron-Phosphate (LiFePO4), or LFP, batteries, which are rapidly becoming the industry standard, allowing for longer battery cycle life, increased reliability, and enhanced safety. The new high-performance, cobalt-free model builds upon key features of the original PowerPod system and PowerPod LFP technology to create the optimal energy storage solution. Notable product enhancements of the PowerPod 2 include:
The PowerPod 2 became the first fully integrated OpenADR 2.0b-certified residential battery storage system on the market, enabling Electriq Power to seamlessly partner with energy aggregators and participate in today’s dynamic energy marketplace. Recent strategic partnerships have given Electriq Power a pathway forward into deployment and control of energy storage systems while maximizing value for microgrids. Additionally, as the company continues to build out its vision of increasing value-added services for Virtual Power Plants, Electriq Power has accelerated deployments of battery systems and established a foundation from which to provide real-time grid services to support utility infrastructure and grid operators across the country.

The company expects to invest $32 billion through 2025 to clean up its emissions profile as follows: $17 billion for zero-carbon generation -- offshore wind, nuclear power life extensions , solar energy and energy storage; $6 billion on electricity transmission and distribution projects such as making its system more resilient to cyber and climate threats; $6 billion on customer growth and other related activities; $3 billion on natural gas distribution modernization and renewable natural gas systems. More than 80 pct of those investments will reduce emissions.
Specifically, the company noted:
Roughly $72 billion by 2035 would increase the company's zero-carbon power sources from 45 pct in 2020 to 70 pct by 2035 while improving its zero- and low-carbon sources from 90 pct to 95 pct.

So I'm like, you know, I'm like, I think we should pay it too. It's not like we shouldn't have carbon generating things. It's just that there's got to be a price on this stuff," Musk said.
"If we just put a price on carbon emissions, the market will react in a sensible way. But because we don`t have a price on it, it is behaving badly," Musk noted.

Customers who allow the utilities to actively dispatch their storage systems during demand response events would also receive compensation in the form of an annual performance incentive. The incentives are intended to drive the deployment of 580 MW of storage by 2030.
The proposal, which allows for third-party ownership of the storage systems and leasing programs, directs the Conn. Green Bank and the the state's utilities to study how best to deliver systems to customers in economically distressed and environmental justice communities, in medical care facilities, in facilities deemed "critical" by public officials, and to those who live at the grid edge and typically experience longer outages.
Under the proposal, upfront incentives, which will be administered by the Conn. Green Bank, will be set in three-year cycles. During the first cycle, the incentive would average around $3,750 per customer to start, with the highest incentives for low- to moderate-income households, then gradually decline in four step-downs to an average of $1,750. (Commercial and industrial customers are eligible as well.)
The utilities will be able to recover the cost of the program through rates.
