This report extends an earlier characterization of long-duration and short-duration energy storage
technologies to include life-cycle cost analysis. Energy storage technologies were examined for
three application categories-bulk energy storage, distributed generation, and power quality-with
significant variations in discharge time and storage capacity. More than 20 different
technologies were considered and figures of merit were investigated including capital cost,
operation and maintenance, efficiency, parasitic losses, and replacement costs. Results are
presented in terms of levelized annual cost, $/kW-yr. The cost of delivered energy, cents/kWh,
is also presented for some cases. The major study variable was the duration of storage available
Here’s what’s next.
