New facility will accelerate energy storage innovation, increase clean energy adoption and grid resilience
A new $75 million facility that will boost clean energy adoption and make the nation’s power grid more resilient, secure and flexible has been given the green light to proceed with design and construction by the U.S. Department of Energy.
DOE has provided approvals for the Grid Storage Launchpad, which will be located at DOE’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland. The approvals allow PNNL to move to the design and construction phase of the project and tap funding allocated by Congress.
