The Department of Energy has issued a request for information to seek feedback on a draft roadmap of an initiative meant to speed up the development and commercialization of energy storage technologies.
DOE said Tuesday it aims to sustain energy storage exports and usage by 2030 through a secure domestic manufacturing base and supply chain as part of the Energy Storage Grand Challenge.
The draft roadmap contains planned activities on five tracks including workforce development, technology transition and development. The outline also determined six use cases, which will be utilized to create technology-neutral functional requirements.
Stakeholders have until August 21 to submit their responses to the notice.
DOE noted it invested more than $1.2B from fiscal year 2017 to 2019 to support energy storage research and development efforts.
