The boards of directors of the American Clean Power Association (ACP) and the U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA) have voted to pursue a merger of the two trade associations to combine their staff, programs, and members.
The merger will bring together the membership and team members of ESA with the resources and reach of ACP. Additionally, it will enhance the American Clean Power Association’s efforts to advocate for the economic and environmental advantages of the clean power economy and further position the renewable energy and storage industries for success as they move into a decade of transformative growth. Launched at the start of 2021, the American Clean Power Association is a new trade association unifying the wind, solar, storage and transmission companies. The merger with ESA will be the second for ACP, following its merger with the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) in January of 2021. ESA represents a diverse group of over 200 companies involved in manufacturing, deploying, and operating energy storage systems in the U.S. and around the globe. The merger will take effect on January 1, 2022, subject to final approval from ESA’s members.
