Good to see more utilities moving into energy storage... Over the next few years we will see most of the Top 100 utilities across the US implementing projects like this. The goal from ESA - Energy Storage Alliance - is 100GW of storage by 2030.

The Vonore Battery Energy Storage System will use lithium-ion batteries, the same technology used in most electric vehicles, to store 40 megawatt-hours of energy. The facility is scheduled to be operational in 2022.

“TVA is building the energy grid of the future,” Senior Manager Dale Harris, who
leads research and development for TVA, said. “This pilot project will help us to innovate and adopt
new technologies that will provide businesses clean, low-cost, reliable electricity while helping
them meet their sustainability goals.”

In February, TVA announced a solar project in Lowndes County, Mississippi, for its Green Invest programs that will include 200 megawatt-hours of battery energy storage. Both battery storage projects are part of TVA’s plan to add up to 5 gigawatts of energy storage capacity through 2038.

The Tennessee Valley Authority will be able to store enough energy to power more than 10,600 homes for three hours with its first battery storage system.

Great size, and so soon, that will further solidify not only what energy storage can really bring today but how these assets will get more valuable in the coming years
