U.S. DOE Energy Storage Handbook

The 2020 U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Storage Handbook (ESHB) is for readers interested in the fundamental concepts and applications of grid-level energy storage systems (ESSs). The ESHB provides high-level technical discussions of current technologies, industry standards, processes, best practices, guidance, challenges, lessons learned, and projections about energy storage as an emerging and enabling technology. Projects and applications span the gamut of the electricity delivery system: generation, transmission, and distribution.

The ESHB is a peer-reviewed document, comprised of 25 chapters with approximately 60 contributing authors. The ESHB is divided into three distinct sections: Energy Storage Technologies, Engineering Storage Systems, and Applications and Markets.

NOTE: The development of the Handbook is ongoing and chapters will be posted on this page as they are finalized.
