    Posted: November 22, 2013 - 12:52 / EAC / White Papers

    The purpose of this report is to assist the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in 1) establishing a framework for understanding the role electricity storage resources (storage) can play in wholesale and retail electricity markets, 2) assessing the value of electricity storage in a variety of regions or markets, , 3) analyzing current and potential issues that can affect the valuation of storage by investors at the wholesale and retail level, and 4) identifying areas for future research and development for electricity storage technologies and applications.

  • PowerPoint Summary of November, 2012 Electricity Advisory Committee (EAC) Storage Report

    Posted: October 18, 2012 - 05:12 / EAC / Reports

    This summary details the progress that DOE and the storage and electric power industries have made since 2008, and identifies accepted applications of energy storage in grid applications. This summary highlights findings from the EAC's report and discusses applications that are technically proven and commercially viable today, and it identifies needed Research, Development, and Demonstration efforts that DOE can and should pursue in coming years, including continued research in electrochemistry, materials science, and ongoing cost improvements of these technologies.
