DOE working with partners to accelerate long-duration energy storage
March 09, 2023
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) took a step forward this week toward accelerating the commercialization of long-duration energy storage (LDES).
While shorter-duration energy storage is currently being installed to support renewable energy generation, long-duration storage technologies are critical to help grid operators use stored energy to better manage seasonal fluctuations in demand. It plays an increasingly important role in ensuring continued grid stability and reliability.
