- More than a billion bucks in financing for power storage space research study, demo jobs and production has been accepted by a United States federal government subcommittee.
The Congressional Committee, a subcommittee of the United States House Committee on Appropriations, has accepted the funding bundle as part of the Financial Year 2021 Energy as well as Water Development Funding Bill, which itself a near-US$ 50 billion assistance bundle for infrastructure and also environment change-related initiatives.
The Bill consists of US$ 3.35 billion of "essential costs" connected to grid modernisation programs, with specific pledges on power storage space including;
- US$ 56.5 million to construct the Grid Storage Launchpad, a national energy storage r & d (R&D) center developed by the Department of Energy (DoE), to be hosted at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). It complies with the DoE's recognition of the need to speed up development of "next generation power storage modern technology as a national concern" which would certainly modernise the power grid and also unlock economic and also social advantages, according to the PNNL.
- US$ 500 million in funding for power storage demonstration jobs, which would certainly be "across a portfolio of innovations and strategies," the Bill checks out.
