About "B.E.S.T. Act (NEG)"
BEST Act is a bill currently pending in Congress to spend $300 million/year on federally funded research to improve energy storage systems. These systems are needed to improve renewable energy like wind and solar in order to smooth out their delivery of electricity. For example, when the wind isn’t blowing or the sun isn’t shining. If energy is stored from when these systems are active, their output can flow evenly and make renewables have reliability equal to fossil fuel systems. But there are already 39 federal programs doing the Affirmative plan today. And probably none of them are needed, because the technical issues are already being solved by the private sector, as energy storage technology and usage is already booming in the Status Quo. Adding a 40th federal program on top of the existing 39 is a waste of time and money, and a waste of an hour and a half of debate time.
