"Community Storage" is an emerging term for utility-sponsored programs that aggregate distributed energy storage resources that are located throughout a community, such as water heaters, electric vehicles, and interconnected storage batteries, to improve the operational efficiency of electric energy services to consumers. The defining characteristic of a community storage program is the coordinated dispatch and optimization of premises-based energy storage resources, often behind a consumer’s electric meter, to achieve system-wide benefits. The Community Storage Initiative (CSI), established in 2016, is focused on collaborative information sharing and coordinated market development efforts in support of wide-scale implementation of energy storage technologies that are located in communities across the country. CSI is dedicated to bringing the economic, environmental and societal benefits of these energy storage technologies to end-use electric customers throughout the country. The Community Storage Initiative conducted the 1st CSI Leadership Forum at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
