The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Energy Storage Grand Challenge is a comprehensive program that seeks to accelerate the development, commercialization, and utilization of next-generation energy storage technologies.
In support of this challenge, PNNL is applying its rich history of battery research and development to provide DOE and industry with a guide to current energy storage costs and performance metrics for various technologies. Cost and performance metrics for individual technologies track the following to provide an overall cost of ownership for each technology:
These metrics are intended to support DOE and industry stakeholders in making sound decisions about future R&D directions and priorities that move the U.S. closer to its goal of energy independence.
The technologies currently being evaluated are:
For more information about each, as well as the related cost estimates, please click on the individual tabs. Additional storage technologies will be added as representative cost and performance metrics are verified.
The interactive figure below presents results on the total installed ESS cost ranges by technology, year, power capacity (MW), and duration (hr).
