  • DOE/EPRI 2013 Electricity Storage Handbook in Collaboration with NRECA

    Posted: July 18, 2013 - 16:07 / DOE / Reports

    The Electricity Storage Handbook is a how-to guide for utility and rural cooperative engineers, planners, and decision makers to plan and implement energy storage projects. The Handbook also serves as an information resource for investors and venture capitalists, providing the latest developments in technologies and tools to guide their evaluations of energy storage opportunities. It includes a comprehensive database of the cost of current storage systems in a wide variety of electric utility and customer services, along with interconnection schematics. A list of significant past and present energy storage projects is provided for a practical perspective.

  • DOE Global Energy Storage Database

    Posted: January 1, 2013 - 12:17 / DOE / Websites

    The DOE Global Energy Storage Database provides free, up-to-date information on grid-connected energy storage projects and relevant state and federal policies. All information is vetted through a third-party verification process. All data can be exported to Excel or PDF. Our hope is that this site will contribute to the rapid development and deployment of energy storage technologies.

  • Energy Storage for the Electricity Grid: Benefits and Market Potential Assessment Guide

    Posted: February 18, 2010 - 13:18 / DOE / White Papers

    This guide describes a high-level, technology-neutral framework for assessing potential benefits from and economic market potential for energy storage used for electric-utility-related applications. The overarching theme addressed is the concept of combining applications/benefits into attractive value propositions that include use of energy storage, possibly including distributed and/or modular systems.
