As of March 2019, utility-scale battery storage capacity in the U.S. reached 899 MW. The U.S Energy Information Administration (EIA) stated that it is expected that another 1,623 MW capacity to come online by 2023. It means that utility-scale battery storage power capacity would nearly triple by the end of 2023 compared to 2019.
According to EIA, In the United States, 16 operating battery storage sites have an installed power capacity of 20 MW or greater. Of the 899 MW of installed operating battery storage reported by states as of March 2019, California, Illinois, and Texas account for a little less than half of that storage capacity.
If all planned battery storage projects reported on Form EIA-860M came online by the end of 2021, the largest two sites would account for 725 MW. It is more than half of adding capacity by 2023. The largest of these planned sites is the Manatee Solar Energy Center in Parrish, Florida With a total capacity of 409 MW. This project will be the largest solar-powered battery system in the world. The second-largest planned utility-scale battery storage facility is the Helix Ravenswood facility located in Queens, New York. The site is planned to be developed in three stages and will have a total capacity of 316 MW.
