California invests in non-lithium ion storage technologies, citing problems with lithium-ion economics

January 7, 2020 |

In California, The California Energy Commission (CEC) is offering $11 million in grants to energy storage solutions that have the potential to be more cost-effective than lithium-based batteries. The CEC stated that the “timing is right for supporting emerging technologies that can out-perform existing energy storage technologies… developing new and emerging technologies now will enable them to be positioned for substantial upcoming market opportunities.” $2 million will be allocated for “green electrolytic hydrogen storage systems in the customer side of the meter applications…” This motion is in support of California’s goal of becoming carbon-free by 2045.
