Maine far from its goal for renewable energy

Maine is in the early stages of developing battery storage for excess renewable energy, but it will need more storage capacity as the state transitions to clean energy to meet statutory climate goals, energy policy experts said.

Maine is just the ninth state to set energy storage goals. But so far it has reached only 21 percent of its goal for 2025.

Maine has 63 megawatts of operational battery energy storage, according to the Governor’s Energy Office. But the state has statutory targets to deploy 300 megawatts of battery energy storage by 2025 and 400 megawatts by 2030.
