Energy Storage Grand Challenge

Energy Storage Grand Challenge words stacked in a white rectangle with a diamond-shaped graphic to the left.

The vision for the Energy Storage Grand Challenge is to create and sustain global leadership in energy storage utilization and exports, with a secure domestic manufacturing supply chain that does not depend on foreign sources of critical materials. Leveraging resource from across all of the Energy Department, the Grand Challenge builds on the $158 million Advanced Energy Storage Initiative announced in President Trump's Fiscal Year 2020 budget request. 

Please note that that the deadline for the Request for Information was extended to Aug. 31, 2020.
