Energy Storage

Energy storage devices can manage the amount of power required to supply customers when need is greatest. They can also help make renewable energy—whose power output cannot be controlled by grid operators—smooth and dispatchable. Energy storage devices can also balance microgrids to achieve an appropriate match of generation and load. This page provides access to resources that policymakers can use to inform the design and implementation of policies and programs to advance deployment of energy storage technologies.
