Stakeholders within Minnesota’s power sector convened during two workshops held in September 2016 and January 2017 to discuss a statewide strategy for energy storage deployment. The first workshop helped identified areas for more in depth analysis. Preliminary results from this analysis and real-world case studies were presented at the second workshop and used to guide a broader discussion around recommended next steps. Full report also available on the Energy Transition Labs, University of Minnesota website.
VCE participated in the second workshop only, where they provided a system level analysis of the MISO footprint (with a focused effort on MN) to determine the pathways for future electricity grids and how storage participates in those futures.
