Description (excerpt):

This report, the first in the Storage Futures Study (SFS) series, explores the roles and opportunities for new, cost-competitive stationary energy storage with a conceptual framework based on four phases of
current and potential future storage deployment, and presents a value proposition for energy storage that could result in substantial new cost-effective deployments. This conceptual framework provides a broader context for consideration of the later reports in the series, including the detailed results of the modeling and analysis of power system evolution scenarios and their operational implications.
