    13. First Standard for Energy Storage Systems Being Developed

      First Standard for Energy Storage Systems Being Developed

      Companies looking for an accurate method to gauge how well large batteries and other grid-scale energy storage systems will work are using a new set of evaluation guidelines, called a protocol, that do just that. And now the protocol is being developed into what will become the first-ever standard for measuring and reporting the performance of energy storage systems. A working group of more than 100 stakeholders representing a wide range of stakeholders worked under the leadership of the U.S. Department of Energy and two of its labs, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories, to develop the protocol. The protocol was initially released in October 2012, revised in June 2014 and continues to be improved today.
