Former Canadian MP on Energy Storage Solutions


Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Ron MacDonald.

On a recent Price of Business show, Host Kevin Price visited with Ron MacDonald of Zinc8 Energy Solutions.

President Biden’s $1.52 trillion budget request for Fiscal Year 2022 includes a policy-making standalone energy storage project eligible for the federal investment tax credit (ITC), a move that advocates say will unleash new capital for renewable energy. With the United States’ goal to achieve a net-zero emissions economy by FY2050, what role do energy storage companies play in our reaching this goal?

The Price of Business will connect with energy storage expert, Ron MacDonald, President & CEO, Zinc8 Energy Solutions, to discuss why energy storage is central to America’s modern energy ecosystem and the importance of enabling a resilient, efficient, sustainable, and affordable grid.
“What’s needed to meet global net-zero emission goals is access to low-cost, mass-energy storage solutions on a global scale,” says MacDonald.

Zinc8 is collaborating with The New York Power Authority (NYPA), to help advance Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Green New Deal by achieving the aggressive energy storage goal of 3GW by 2030 and by supporting a nation-leading commitment of 100% electricity from emission-free sources by 2040.
