Energy Storage Association Maps Out Path Forward for a Disruption-Proof, Resilient Grid: 35 GW of Energy Storage by 2025
Washington, D.C., November 6, 2017 - The Energy Storage Association (ESA) today released its “35x25: A Vision for Energy Storage” white paper, which maps a clear and actionable pathway to reaching 35 gigawatts (GW) of new energy storage systems installed in the U.S. by 2025. Created in conjunction with Navigant Research, the white paper outlines the market drivers that are powering rapid storage industry growth and explains the value of a disruption-proof grid. It also quantifies the considerable benefits of widespread energy storage deployment, such as $4 billion in cumulative operational grid savings and the potential for more than 167,000 new jobs. The report charts 35 GW of new installations across all energy storage technologies from 2017 to 2025.
