This year’s summit will focus on new strategic efforts for energy storage advancement and progress in meeting the Long Duration Storage Shot goals. 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will host the second annual Energy Storage Grand Challenge Summit on September 27-28, 2022 at Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont, Illinois. The public is invited to attend in person or virtually to provide input on the Department’s energy storage activities. 

The summit brings together the energy community, National Laboratories, and offices across DOE to build the connections needed to achieve the Energy Storage Grand Challenge and Long Duration Storage Shot goals. Attendees will hear about DOE’s major energy storage activities, learn how DOE is addressing energy storage needs and barriers, and participate in breakout sessions to help shape the future of energy storage.  

During the summit, DOE will launch Storage Innovation 2030, a year-long strategic process to develop specific and quantifiable research, design, and development pathways to achieve the targets identified in the Long Duration Storage Shot. There are a limited number of spots available for industry representatives to present technology solutions for a resilient, decarbonized future.  

“The Energy Storage Grand Challenge Summit a is a catalytic platform for grid transformation by convening a broad set of stakeholders and engaging in lively discussions that are shaping the future of energy storage,” said Office of Electricity Acting Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Gil Bindewald. “This year’s summit, and especially the Storage Innovations 2030 effort, is critical to achieving the Long Duration Storage Shot targets. We are looking forward to hearing from the energy community on where they see energy storage gaps, opportunities, and areas for  collaboration with DOE.”  

In-person attendance is limited for the summit, but it will be livestreamed to enable broad participation. Registration is required for both in-person and virtual attendance. 

Registration is open now and closes on September 27. The public may register online.
