New! Long-Duration Energy Storage Demonstrations - DOE - $349M Available - LOI due 12/15/22

Updated: Nov 15, 2022

Opportunity Title: Bipartisan Infrastructure Law: Long-Duration Energy Storage Demonstrations

Opportunity Number: DE-FOA-0002867


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is releasing this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit emerging Long-Duration Energy Storage (LDES) demonstration projects capable of delivering electricity for 10-24 hours or longer to support a low-cost, reliable, carbon-free electric grid. This $349 million effort seeks LDES demonstration projects that will validate new technologies, enhance the capabilities of customers and communities to integrate LDES more effectively, and sustain American global leadership in energy storage. LDES demonstration projects are encouraged to have substantial engagement with local and regional stakeholders to ensure that they generate local, regional, and national benefits. Demonstration projects will be expected to carry out meaningful community and labor engagement; invest in America’s workforce by creating good-paying jobs with the free and fair choice to join a union; advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility; and contribute to the President’s Justice40 Initiative goal that 40% of the overall benefits of certain federal investments, including those in climate change, clean energy and energy efficiency, flow to disadvantaged communities.
