NY awarded $16.6 million in funding for five long-duration energy storage projects and made another $17 million designed for projects that advance development of long-duration energy storage technologies, including hydrogen.
The states larger goal would be to install 3,000 MW of energy storage by 2030 to greatly help integrate renewables. NY really wants to eventually develop 6,000 MW.

Pay attention to the most recent episode featuring FERC Commissioner Allison Clements, who discusses record heat, resiliency, and the role of grid-enhancing technologies in the power transition.
The awarded funding comes through the brand new York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). The $16.6 million will support the next projects:
- BorregoSolar Systems, Inc. $2.7 million To build up, design and construct two stand-alone energy storage systems and perform field demonstrations of a six-hour zinc hybrid cathode energy storage system in NEW YORK to greatly help demonstrate that zinc hybrid technology is economically competitive with lithium-ion.
- JC Solutions, LLCdbaRCAMTechnologies $1.2 million To build up a 3D concrete-printed marine pumped hydroelectric storage system that integrates directly with offshore wind development to get grid resiliency and reduced reliance on fossil fuel plants to meet up periods of peak electric demand.
- Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station, LLC- $12.5 million To show nuclear-hydrogen fueled peak power generation paired with an extended duration hydrogen energy storage unit in reducing emissions from the brand new York Independent System Operator electric grid.
- Capacity to Hydrogen $100,000 To build up a Reversible Fuel Cell System for Hydrogen Production and Energy Storage called the Clean Energy Bridge also to help facilitate the systems readiness for demonstration and commercial adoption.
- ROCCERA, LLC $100,000 To judge and demonstrate a novel commercially viable Solid Oxide Electrolyzer Cell prototype for clean hydrogen production as well as a corresponding scalable, better manufacturing process.
The excess $17 million in competitive funding would encourage further product development and demonstration projects in energy storage which are 10 to over 100 hours in duration.
NYSERDA said project submissions should advance, develop or field-test hydrogen, electric, chemical, mechanical or thermal-electric storage technologies that could address cost, performance, siting and renewable integration challenges, such as for example grid congestion, hosting capacity constraints and lithium-ion siting in NEW YORK.
Proposals will undoubtedly be accepted through October 17, 2022.
Up to now,NYSERDAs Renewable Optimization and Energy Storage Innovation Program has enabled the development of 356 projects with over $225 million. NYSERDAinitiatives are funded through the States 10-year, $6 billion Clean Energy Fund.
NYSERDA, the brand new York STATE DEPT. of Public Service and the states Department of Environmental Conservation may also be working to create a regulatory clean hydrogen framework.
This consists of the evaluation and development of codes and standards, program development to aid microgrids which are hydrogen powered instead of by polluting backup generators and funding for hydrogen product development, pilots and demonstrations.
