IEI Releases Energy Storage Roadmap

In 2020 the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) put out an RFP that sought “to create an energy storage roadmap to determine energy storage potential in Michigan and develop recommendations to inform investment and policies regarding energy storage.” Such a plan was necessary to ensure Michigan is able to access the grid performance and reliability benefits of energy storage in the future.

The Institute for Energy Innovation is now pleased to release the Energy Storage Roadmap for Michigan. This roadmap was completed with help from partners Michigan EIBC, 5 Lakes Energy and Michigan State University Associate Professor for Civil & Environmental Engineering Annick Anctil. The report includes modeling analysis of behind-the-meter commercial storage and utility-scale storage on the bulk electricity grid. It provides a comprehensive set of policy recommendations to make Michigan a leader in energy storage.
