Proposal for the Longer Duration Energy Storage Demonstration innovation competition - Stream 1

Stream 1 would be for technologies currently at TRL 6/7– aiming to demonstrate the capability of first-of-a-kind energy storage facilities through actual demonstrations in operational environments.

Proposal for the Longer Duration Energy Storage Demonstration innovation competition - Stream 1 background

The Longer Duration Energy Storage Demonstration innovation competition aims to accelerate commercialisation of innovative longer duration energy storage projects (excluding commercial solutions such as pumped hydro / lithium ion) at different technology readiness levels, through first-of-a-kind (FOAK) full-system prototypes or actual demonstrations.

Stream 1 would be for technologies currently at TRL 6/7– aiming to demonstrate the capability of first-of-a-kind energy storage facilities through actual demonstrations in operational environments.
