The United States power sector is in the midst of profound transformation
In this report, we detail the emerging opportunities to drive the deployment of more than 35 GW of new energy storage systems in the U.S. by 2025 and, in turn, move the U.S. toward a disruption-proof grid.
The benefits to consumers, utilities and grid operators for deploying 35 GW are tremendous:
- Faster, more accurate response within seconds, resulting in $4 billion in cumulative operational cost savings;
- Customer engagement to help modernize the grid;
- Improved reliability and resilience;
- Reduced emissions; and
- The creation of more than 167,000 jobs in manufacturing and R&D, construction, project development, operations and maintenance, construction, sales, marketing, management, administrative, and other positions.
In the full report we detail the steps that legislators, regulators, and utilities can take to enable this vision for a disruption-proof grid.
