    Energy Storage Ranks High On Power Research Agenda

    ARPA-E  recently announced up to $30 million in funding for projects as part of a new ARPA-E program: Duration Addition to electricitY Storage (DAYS). DAYS project teams will build innovative technologies to enable long-duration energy storage on the power grid, providing reliable electricity for 10 to approximately 100 hours.

    1. What we've done is thrown a special salt into water, dropped in an electrode, and created a reversible chemical reaction that stores electrons in the form of hydrogen gas.
    2. We believe this prototype technology will be able to meet Department of Energy goals for utility-scale electrical storage practicality.
    3. While the precise materials and design still need development, this prototype demonstrates the type of science and engineering that suggest new ways to achieve low-cost, long-lasting, utility-scale batteries.
    4. Other rechargeable battery technologies are easily more than five times of that cost over the lifetime.
    5. The breakthrough we report in Nature Energy has the potential to meet DOE's grid-scale criteria.
