Long duration energy storage systems – defined as technologies that can store energy for more than 10 hours at a time – are a critical component of a low-cost, reliable, carbon-free electric grid. In alignment with DOE’s Energy Earthshot Initiative, the Long Duration Storage Shot sets a bold target to reduce the cost of grid-scale energy storage by 90% within the decade.
On September 23, 2021 stakeholders came together for the Long Duration Storage Shot Summit to learn more about how we can work together to achieve this goal and create affordable grid storage for clean power – anytime, anywhere.

Stakeholder Round Table: Overcoming Market, Regulatory, and Finance Challenges for Long-Duration Storage Technologies
Long-duration energy storage (LDES) will increasingly be critical to balance the grid. However, existing market, regulatory, and financing paradigms are ill-suited to catalyze LDES deployment. Join this round table to learn more about the value proposition for LDES under evolving grid conditions, potential market, regulatory, and financing challenges, as well as potential solutions.

Rapid Operational Validation Initiative: Industry Roundtable
View the ROVI presentation
To meet the administration's 2035 decarbonization goal, long duration storage technologies will need to be commercially ready, at scale, in 8 years (by 2030). Most energy assets have operational lifetimes of 15-20 years or longer. Commercial deployment of these new technologies will require the ability to validate performance faster than real time. DOE has proposed investing in this capability through the Rapid Operational Validation Initiative. Join this session to learn more about the ROVI concept and voice your real needs so ROVI can be developed to address them.
