In May 2020, the Department of Energy (DOE) hosted a series of virtual workshops to support the Energy Storage Grand Challenge (ESGC). The Challenge is a comprehensive program to accelerate the development, commercialization, and use of next-generation energy storage technologies to make the United States a leader in energy storage by 2030.

DOE then released the “Energy Storage Grand Challenge Draft Roadmap” and a Request for Information seeking stakeholder input. Read the draft roadmap and respond to the RFI by August 31 here: https://www.energy.gov/energy-storage-grand-challenge/downloads/energy-storage-grand-challenge-draft-roadmap
