Sandia National Laboratories invites you and your organization to join the National Consortium for the Advancement of LDES (Long-Duration Energy Storage) Technologies. The LDES National Consortium will provide a forum to enable stakeholders across the LDES ecosystem to convene & identify barriers, determine potential synergies, and collaboratively develop & recommend strategies necessary to achieve commercialization for a wide range of LDES technologies within the next decade. The output will be a comprehensive set of recommendations for LDES commercialization that can be offered to diverse states & regions, markets, communities, and end-use customers.

The LDES National Consortium is being led by Sandia and five other national laboratories (ANL, INL, NREL, ORNL, and PNNL) and will include a broad range of stakeholder organizations that will enable and streamline collaboration between public and private entities. These Teaming Partners will play a critical role in the LDES National Consortium by helping to define the key questions, issues, and outcomes that the National Consortium must address to support the commercialization of LDES technologies. Teaming Partners will participate directly in break-out “Tiger Teams” that will address challenges in a number of areas including:

  • Customer Adoption
  • Demonstrations & Deployments
  • Economics & Valuation
  • Equity
  • Grid Infrastructure
  • Interconnection, Standards & Permitting
  • Investor Confidence / Financing
  • Market Planning
  • Policy & Regulations
  • Reliability & Resilience
  • Safety & Grid Security
  • Supply Chain & Manufacturing Efficiencies
  • Technology Development, Evaluation & Testing
  • Use Case Development
  • Utility Resource Planning
  • Work Force Development

By actively participating as a Teaming Partner, you and your organization will have a forum to offer a unique perspective on key issues related to LDES commercialization and directly contribute to the recommendations developed by the LDES National Consortium through its consensus-driven approach.

SAVE THE DATE – The LDES National Consortium will hold a kick-off webinar on January 16, 2024. This webinar is open to the public and will provide a great overview of the scope of the LDES National Consortium’s work and mission. Please email Will McNamara for more information and to be added to our email list.

The National Consortium has been awarded funding from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Technology Transitions (OTT) in partnership with the Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED), issued as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF).

If you have any questions or would like more information about joining this initiative, please contact Will McNamara at
