Form Energy Receives $30M from CEC for 100-Hour Iron-Air Battery Storage Project to Support Grid Reliability

Form Energy secures a $30 million grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) for its 5 MW/500 MWh iron-air battery storage project. The initiative, located at the Pacific Gas and Electric Company substation in Mendocino County, aims to enhance grid reliability by continuously discharging energy for up to 100 hours. Operating on the principles of reversible rusting, the iron-air battery technology utilizes iron and air electrodes with a water-based electrolyte solution. Once operational in 2025, it will become California’s largest long-duration energy storage project, contributing to the state’s commitment to clean energy and climate change mitigation.
