Slides from this webinar are available as a pdf here. A recording of this webinar will be posted shortly.


Summarizing one year of operations, this webinar shows how the Sterling Municipal Light Department’s energy storage project saved nearly $400,000 for the town’s ratepayers, and will take a deep dive into the economics of utility-scale energy storage in New England. The webinar also provides information on a second energy storage project being undertaken by Sterling in conjunction with a community solar installation.

Speakers include Sterling manager Sean Hamilton; Ray Byrne of Sandia National Laboratories, who authored an IEEE economics report on this project; Dan Borneo of Sandia, who provided technical assistance and guidance to the project; and Dr. Imre Gyuk of U.S. DOE-OE, who supported the project with a matching grant.

This webinar was a presentation of the Energy Storage Technology Advancement Partnership (ESTAP). ESTAP is the Energy Storage Technology Advancement Partnership, a federal-state funding and information sharing project that aims to accelerate the deployment of electrical energy storage technologies in the U.S. ESTAP is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Electricity, managed by Sandia National Laboratories, and administered by the Clean Energy States Alliance.
