Workshop Overview

Register Now
  • This free, virtual workshop will bring together members of industry, national laboratories, universities, and government to discuss the needs, challenges, and opportunities associated with carbon-free energy and energy storage for manufacturing and industrial decarbonization
  • Energy needs will first be identified for different manufacturing and industrial sectors (e.g., cement/steel production, chemical synthesis, food processing, petroleum refining)
  • Energy storage technologies and associated challenges will then be presented from experts in the field
  • Ample time will be provided for discussion and Q&A
  • The outcome of this workshop will be a summary of needs and gaps (scale and duration), use cases, potential technologies, and a framework for implementation of energy storage for manufacturing and industrial decarbonization (Energy StorM) through initiatives such as the U.S. DOE Energy Storage Grand Challenge.
  • Please check out the U.S. DOE Energy Storage Handbook for background information on relevant energy storage technologies.
