The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Iowa Stored Energy Park (ISEP) are conducting a free, 1-hour webinar, Lessons from Iowa: The Economic, Market, and Organizational Issues in Making Bulk Energy Storage Work, on Thursday, February 9, 2012 at 1 p.m. ET. Presenters include Dr. Imre Gyuk of DOE’s Office of Electricity Deliverability and Energy Reliability and Bob Schulte from ISEP.
The webinar was original scheduled for January 20, 2012, but experienced technical difficulties due to the large number of participants and was rescheduled. All participants must reregister.
Funded by a DOE grant and managed by Sandia National Laboratories, ISEP’s 270 Megawatt compressed air energy storage (CAES) project yielded valuable insights on the development of facilities for use by other entities exploring utility-scale bulk energy storage. Most of the lessons are independent of geology and storage technology.
Additional details, including how to register, are available from the webinar announcement.
