Energy Storage Trends

Upcoming Webinars

For the last five years, Clean Energy Group (CEG), a national nonprofit, has been working to demonstrate that battery storage can jump-start clean energy markets. During that time, CEG, which does not accept any corporate contributions, has provided groups as diverse as state and federal policymakers, cities, low-income community groups, industry, environmental advocates, foundations, and investors with free information they need to understand how energy storage serves environmental, equity, and economic needs.

CEG has compiled its market understanding on the opportunities for battery storage in a comprehensive new report, Jump-Start: How Activists and Foundations Can Champion Battery Storage to Recharge the Clean Energy Transition.

This report was prepared for activists and foundations who want to understand how battery storage can become an essential new part of their clean energy and climate advocacy. It tries to answer two basic questions: (1) What do we need to know to understand these opportunities? and (2) What actions should we support to realize them?

This free report explores the top 10 emerging trends for battery storage across all elements of the energy system, and it recommends over 50 actions that should be taken to accelerate battery storage in these topic areas.

Click on the images below to explore the top trends in energy storage. These sections are updated periodically. They represent a more up-to-date overview of the battery storage trends discussed in the Jump-Start report.
