CX-004958: Categorical Exclusion Determination

University of Southern California-Iron-Air Rechargeable Battery for Grid-Scale Energy Storage
CX(s) Applied: B3.6
Date: 08/11/2010
Location(s): Los Angeles, California
Office(s): Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy

Funding will support laboratory and bench-scale research and development on a high performance iron-air battery for use in grid-scale energy storage applications. The proposed work is consistent with the goal of Grid-Scale Rampable Intermittently Dispachable Storage (GRIDS): development of new technologies to enable the widespread deployment of cost-effective, grid-scale energy storage. Proposed work consists entirely of research, development, and demonstration work to be completed in University of Southern California's laboratory and research facilities in Los Angeles, California and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The work performed will be limited to bench-scale design, analysis, and development.
