The US has published a strategy for the development of energy storage technologies until 2030

The US Department of Energy has published a roadmap for the Energy Storage Grand Challenge, a program to develop the country's latest energy storage technologies.

It runs until 2030 and includes "an aggressive but achievable goal: to develop and produce domestically energy storage technologies that can meet all the US market needs by 2030," according to RenEn.

“Three pillars”, on which the concept is based - “Create innovations here”, “Produce here”, “Deploy everywhere (export)”.

What results are they going to achieve:

  • In 2030, the present value of storage for long-term stationary drives should be $ 0.05 / kWh, which is 90% less than 2020. Achieving this goal will enable energy storage systems to be commercially efficiently deployed virtually everywhere - to deliver power during peak periods, maintain the grid to charge EVs quickly and ensure critical services reliability.

According to the US Department of Energy, other promising applications for stationary storage include servicing remote communities, enhancing site flexibility, increasing the resilience of interdependent networks, and facilitating grid transformation.

  • By 2030, the factory cost of a 300-mile electric vehicle battery kit should be $ 80 per kWh, 44% less than the current $ 143 per kWh. Achieving the target in 2030 will lead to the competitiveness of electric vehicles and positively impact the development of the stationary energy storage sector.

ESGC encompasses the full spectrum of energy storage technologies, divided into several categories: electrochemical, electromechanical, thermal, flexible generation, flexible loads and power electronics, and is also considering various storage use cases to ensure that storage technologies can effectively meet specific needs.

Earlier it was reported that over the past 10 years, batteries for electric vehicles have fallen in price by 14%.
