“BIG” Energy Storage: Priorities and Pathways to Long-Duration Energy Storage
This workshop defined the unique challenges of “BIG” (large capacity (>100 MWe) and long-duration (>6 hours) energy storage for grid applications, increased awareness in the energy storage community, and identified needs and gaps that must be addressed to realize the capability.
The workshop brought together researchers, representatives, and energy-storage stakeholders from utilities, industry (U.S. Domestic and International), U.S. Department of Energy, state and local government, national laboratories, and universities.
The outcome of this workshop is a summary of needs and gaps (scale and duration), use cases, potential technologies, and a framework for implementation through initiatives such as the U.S. DOE Energy Storage Grand Challenge.
