35x25: A Vision for Energy Storage

Download Executive Summary

Download Full Report

Energy demands, resources, and the role of the consumer are bringing a new reality to the economics of the power grid. Recent advancements in energy storage technologies are improving the ability to accommodate these changes, improving reliability and resilience, and enhancing electric system performance.

What does this mean over the next several years?

This white paper, 35x25: A Vision for Energy Storage, details the emerging opportunities to drive the deployment of more than 35 gigawatts of new energy storage systems in the U.S. by 2025 and, in turn, move the U.S. toward a disruption-proof grid.

Inside this report you will find analysis of the benefits storage brings to consumers, utilities and grid operators, including:

  • Faster, more accurate response within seconds, resulting in $4 billion in cumulative operational cost savings;
  • Customer engagement to help modernize the grid;
  • Improved reliability and resilience;
  • Reduced emissions; and
  • The creation of more than 167,000 jobs in manufacturing and R&D, construction, project development, operations and maintenance, construction, sales, marketing, management, administrative, and other positions. 

In addition, ESA details in the full report the steps that legislators, regulators, and utilities can take to enable this vision for a disruption-proof grid.
