Grant Funding Opportunity - GFO-19-308 - Assessing Long-duration Energy Storage Deployment Scenarios to Meet California's Energy Goals
Purpose of Solicitation
The purpose of this solicitation is to fund research projects that will evaluate different scenarios for the deployment of long-duration storage to meet the state’s mandates to decarbonize the electricity sector in California by 2045. The objective is to develop a clear understanding of the role that long-duration energy storage (10 hours or greater) can and should play in the future of California’s grid and the optimal durations and locations to support a variety of applications. This information will inform the development of policy to enable the deployment of long-duration storage in the state and provide information to manufacturers and the investment community that is necessary to build the market for these systems in the state.
