Energy Storage 101, Part 1: Battery Storage Technology, Systems and Cost Trends

March 26, 2019 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET

This first in a multi-part energy storage webinar series covered the state of the technology, energy storage systems and cost trends. The energy storage team at Sandia National Laboratories has combined lessons learned from numerous battery deployment projects and analyses to create this webinar series overview. Future installments in the series will cover such topics as applications and economics, policy and regulations, safety and reliability, and project development, commissioning and deployment.
