Thermal, mechanical, and chemical electricity storage (TMCES) technologies are viable alternatives to batteries for a range of energy storage applications. Specifically, technologies such as compressed air, flywheel, pumped heat, pumped hydro, thermal heat, hydrogen, etc. storage methods are advancing rapidly toward commercialization and compete with batteries to cover a broad range of electric grid needs. The joint industry-government-academia TMCES workshop will provide an open information and networking session with the primary goal to advance non-battery electric storage technologies. Researchers, industry partners, and end-users will meet in this workshop to discuss the state-of-the art of technology, identify technology gaps, research needs, and develop a roadmap to coordinate and direct future pre-competitive R&D activities related to thermal, mechanical, and chemical electricity storage technologies. This two-day event is jointly organized by members from industry, academia and the US Department of Energy.
