MetadataShow full item record
Becky Diffen, an Austin-based lawyer with 15 years of experience in the power industry, wrote an article in the May 2017 issue of Renewable Energy World discussing key considerations and strategies to overcome challenges in co-locating energy storage with renewable generation resources. In the article, Diffen noted benefits in co-locating energy storage, particularly with wind or solar projects. She also outlined numerous legal and practical issues that project developers should consider when assessing whether to acquire and co-locate storage facilities, particularly battery projects, with existing or new renewable generation. Diffen is also an adjunct professor at the University of Texas School of Law, where she teaches a seminar on Electric Power Law.
