New Federal Funding for Energy Storage: What’s Available and How To Qualify

Tuesday, August 9, 2022 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET

The US Department of Energy has several new, large funding budgets for energy storage projects, research and development. Within the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, there is $500 million for long duration energy storage prototypes, pilot projects and market creation. There are also other large funds for which energy storage projects may qualify: for example, the newly created Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations has $1 billion for large-scale demonstration projects. This webinar featured speakers from the national laboratories and US DOE, who explained how and when these federal dollars will become available, who can qualify, and how to apply.
