The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Electricity (OE) announced a team of six DOE national laboratories to receive a total of $2 million to carry out the Rapid Operational Validation Initiative (ROVI). ROVI will validate the testing of new energy storage systems.

The DOE national labs working on ROVI are Argonne National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Sandia National Laboratories.

Cost-effective, long-duration, and grid-scale energy storage is essential to modernizing our country’s electric gird infrastructure with the goal of reaching 100 percent clean energy by 2035, and a net-zero economy by 2050. ROVI supports the DOE-wide Energy Storage Grand Challenge strategy by accelerating the ability to validate storage technology performance.
