The storage market is expected to play a critical role in facilitating the integration of intermittent renewables into power systems and the energy transition. More specifically, variability and uncertainty related to solar and wind resources pose technical challenges for the process of balancing supply and demand, which in turn increases the need for system flexibility. Both stand-alone

Researchers evaluate the role and value of long-duration energy storage technologies in securing a carbon-free electric grid. Leda Zimmerman – MIT News “The overall question for me is how to decarbonize society in the most affordable way,” says Nestor Sepulveda SM ’16, PhD ’20. As a postdoc at MIT and a researcher with the MIT Energy
In the past years, wind and solar energy have reached their all time low price level, allowing for an increasing and widespread use and installation of such renewable energy systems.

Earlier this year, the California Energy Commission (CEC) published a $20 million solicitation to fund research projects for the deployment of long-duration energy storage. The objective was to develop a clear understanding of the role that long-duration energy storage (10 hours or greater) can play in helping to meet the state’s mandates to decarbonize the electricity sector
