August 3 (Renewables Now) - The US Department of Energy (DoE) on Tuesday announced a USD-26-million (EUR 25.4m) programme to back projects that demonstrate how the power grid can run on a combination of up to 100% solar, wind and battery storage.
The Solar and Wind Grid Services and Reliability Demonstration Programme is funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. It will support up to 10 projects. Some of the projects will develop technologies and strategies to preserve grid reliability at any level of inverter-based generation. In the second topic area, projects will combine at least 10 MW of solar, wind and storage to demonstrate their capability of providing grid services at scale. The projects are expected to be selected in February 2023.
The initiative will contribute to the US ambition for a decarbonised electricity sector by 2035.
