Department of Energy seeks to kickstart storage under new budget

The Department of Energy’s 2020 budget request reveals new initiatives for advanced energy storage technologies, which are critical to integrating more clean energy into every portion of the power grid.

In the DOE’s assessment, deployment of these technologies has been slowed by a “scarcity of technical information on [their] economic performance.”

The proposed efforts are meant to lower technical barriers to their adoption, helping to meet high electric grid demand by saving energy during off-peak periods from intermittent renewable sources like wind and solar.
