The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) have awarded $20 million in grants for 26 energy storage projects in 25 communities. This grant funding is part of the Advancing Commonwealth Energy Storage (ACES) program. DOER and MassCEC originally intended to award $10 million in grants, but decided to double the grant amount based on an influx of strong applications. Details on each of the 26 projects are available here. A press release announcing the awards is available here

Development of the ACES Request for Proposals was supported by the Energy Storage Technology Advancement Partnership (ESTAP). ESTAP is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Electricity and Sandia National Laboratories, and is managed by CESA.
