Energy Storage for Grid Security and Modernization program

Over the next 10 years, the world-wide market for grid-scale energy storage is expected to grow to over $200 billion. The Energy Storage for Grid Security and Modernization (ESGSM) program helps the energy industry to tackle the greatest obstacles to adopting and using energy storage technologies, including durability, cost and risk associated with the development and implementation of energy storage in Canada.

By focusing on electrical energy storage technologies that can be placed close to the electrical load, the ESGSM program works closely to strengthen the domestic energy storage value chain and facilitate technology export opportunities. Ultimately, these gains will help to defer the costs of transmission and distribution infrastructure investment, integrate variable generation and enable peak shaving required to build and maintain an efficient, secure and modern electrical grid.
