Energy Storage Futures, Volume 1: Types and Services
- Feb 3, 2022 3:32 pm GMT
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) over the last year released a multivolume study titled “Storage Futures Study.” The high-level goal of this is to model battery storage systems’ (BESS) implementation out to 2050. However it also takes a deep dive into how these systems are currently used, will be used in the future, the economics and technology surrounding their use along the way.
There are currently six volumes in this series, and a seventh is planned sometime later in 2022. As I start to write this series my current intent is to track each of these volumes with a much shorter one of my own (Volume 1 of SFS is 50 pages long). Since I recently stopped posting a second paper every week, I will complete each BESS Futures paper, go through my normal proofing process, and then post each on a following Thursday.
This paper summarizes Part 1 of the Storage Futures Study.
These are paths, not end-points. At any point along our journey a new technology may alter these paths or provide an additional path. In the U.S.
