Welcome to StorageWiki
Welcome to the main page of the Electric Power Research Institute's StorageWiki, a wiki-style hub for energy storage research at EPRI. StorageWiki was built using the MediaWiki engine to be an extensible and dynamic educational and knowledge dissemination tool. It is meant to supplement the breadth of published content that is accessible through the EPRI website, or through each program's cockpit, by providing a flexible, web-based content delivery solution for projects that can benefit from the ability to easily update and add content as a project progresses. This wiki can be quickly built upon by future energy storage projects that decide that this framework suits their needs.
We believe this resource can bring value to EPRI researchers, members, and the general public by providing:
- A unifying approach and platform to enable exchange of information across deliverables and programs
- An extensible website infrastructure to facilitate the quick addition of new projects as well as periodic updates to existing project content
- A hub for interactive content for future projects to build upon
