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.
