June 18 ESTAP Webinar: An Overview of the Energy Storage Handbook

June 14, 2013 - 3:27pm


On Tuesday, June 18 from 2 - 3 p.m. ET, Clean Energy States Alliance will host a webinar introducing the recently updated Electricity Storage Handbook released by Sandia National Laboratories and published by the U.S. Department of Energy. Titled "Highlights of the DOE/EPRI 2013 Electricity Storage Handbook in Collaboration with NRECA," the webinar will be introduced by by Dr. Imre Gyuk, Energy Storage Program Manager in the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability.

This webinar will highlight the various topical areas of the 2013 edition of the Electricity Storage Handbook. This is a how-to guide for utility and rural cooperative engineers, planners, and decision makers to plan and implement electricity storage projects. It builds upon the EPRI-DOE Handbook of Energy Storage for Transmission and Distribution Applications, released in December 2003. Additionally, the Handbook is an information resource for investors and venture capitalists on the latest developments in technologies and tools to guide their evaluations of electricity storage opportunities.  It includes a comprehensive database of the cost of current electricity storage systems in a wide variety of popular electric utility and customer applications, along with interconnection schematics. A list of significant past and present electricity storage projects is also included for a practical perspective.

In addition to Dr. Gyuk, featured speakers will be Georgianne Huff, Principal Member of Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories, and Abbas Akhil, a Principal with Renewable Energy Ventures, LLC in Albuquerque, NM.

The webinar is free but space is limited and registration is required. Online registration is available.

The Electricity Storage Handbook is jointly sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Electric Power Research Institute, in collaboration with the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
