In light of the recent report on Behind the Meter storage from BNEF it is interesting to see that this scale are up 66% year on year. I wonder what the figures are in the UK and Germany? Of course we have a big couple of quarters coming up in California with the Aliso Canyon deployments coming, and of course progress with the winning projects in the UK EFR tender. Exciting times.
Ravi Manghani, GTM Research’s director of energy storage, said: “This quarter marked several storage firsts, such as the first grid-scale project in MISO and a large solar-plus-storage at a municipal utility in Ohio.” Behind-the-meter deployments, mostly residential and commercial energy storage systems, in the US grew by just 3% quarter-on-quarter, but they increased by 66% year-on-year due to improving economics and adoption in new state markets. This segment is forecast to account for 25% of all installations this year, up from 15% last year. It will also account for more than half of all deployments by 2021.
