PNNL Grid Storage Lab

The PNNL Grid Storage Launchpad (GSL) is an 85,000 SF facility that includes 30 laboratory modules, a laboratory suite dedicated to testing energy storage technologies, workstations, collaboration areas and multiple conference rooms. The GSL provides systematic and independent validation and testing of new grid storage technologies, from basic materials and components to prototype devices under realistic grid operating conditions. It promotes rigorous grid performance requirements at all stages of technology development and accelerates the development of innovative technologies. Further, it links researchers from national laboratories, universities and industry in a collaborative setting to speed innovation and deployment of grid-scale energy storage technologies.
