2014 DOE OE Energy Storage Program Peer Review and Update Meeting

The 2014 Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Storage Program Peer Review and Update Meeting was held Sept. 17-19 at the Renaissance Washington Hotel, Washington D.C., highlighting the breadth and diversity of the DOE Energy Storage program.

The DOE Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability (OE) Energy Storage Systems Program sponsored the three-day event, which featured projects from Sandia National Laboratories, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), and DOE OE-funded university energy storage projects were also presented.
